While I agree that freenode has many flaws (the biggest being NOIDPRIVMSG), I find that while I am in Debian channels on both networks, many more open source projects are on freenode, and that makes things much more convenient. Even if all Debian development moved to OFTC, I'd still stay on freenode for fluxbox, all of the various kde components I use, postfix, etc, etc etc. I think it might be better for us to try to use our influence as a huge source of users to try to better freenode than to just move.
