The DPN consists of news, and I fail to see what's new here. A new opinion that Debian can be worth a try won't be great news for Debian users, and I'd imagine the vast majority of our readership consists of Debian users.I personally disagree. News articles like this can very useful material for our community to promote Debian and the fact they get published can create some hype (people denting, talking about that, etc).
That's the thing. It is a new article, but I don't consider it as a news article. I consider it as an editorial.
Otherwise, I agree that good coverage could be promotion material, but I'm afraid that this article is far from ideal for promotion means, although it could be used for "promotion" in the sense of countering arguments against Debian.
