Imagine how self-righteous this sounds to a developer of Debian? You freely
admit you do not contribute to the Debian project and then raise the standard
for the product they produce. If it is so disagreeable a prospect to use
Debian, then don't use it. You seem to be intelligent, have a good writing
style, and insight into the matter, perhaps you should do something about it?
