debian is NOT going commercial.  our committment to free software and the
free software community is as strong as ever.

i hope that answers your question :-)


PS: as you noted, we are way ahead in terms of quality and we intend
to stay that way. we probably need some sort of evangelism/marketing
team to spread the word about debian. this will probably be a good
opportunity for users who want to contribute something back to debian
but aren't confident about their coding skills...not everyone is a
programmer, but everyone has some valuable skill they can contribute if
they have the time or inclination.
