Recently Debian seems to have grown a very large set of toes that 
is impossible _not_ step onto. Why all that nitpicking? I fail to
see how our social contract allows us to be that arrogant. With the
increase of Debian's release times and without commercial support
(meaning Ubuntu and/or DCC, whatever its name will be) Debian will
be gone before long. At least in that 'enterprise' environment I used
to use Debian in. Please try to recognize such efforts as help for 
Debian (buzzword for this would be 'leverage') not offense.

Thanks for coming back down to earth,

X-Disclaimer: I am in no way related to Ubuntu, Progeny, Xandros, DCC.
  I am just a mediocre DD who does not understand that permanent
  fighting against everything and everyone. It's getting on my nerves 
  and experience shows that this very discussion will at least last for 
  two years whereafter some people might eventually find that the last 
  stable release was in 2005.
