I am somewhat of a lurker that enjoys this list not only for the technical
know-how, how-to's, how-not-to's, but also for the climate of the
Not only is Debian one of the best distros around, but IMNHO one of the
real strenths with Debian is the fact that the developers are very aware
of the licensing isues. In a world where SCO is claiming patent-rights
over GNU software, this discussion is very important. I am not willing
to give up our rights to use GPL:ed or other free (not as in beer)
software, just to avoid a one-shot delay in a release. If using the
latest and greatest is important, go with testing or unstable. I am
aware of the fact that some software in woody is getting a bit long in
