I think the point some are trying to make is that Debian's direction can
be influenced[1], but this requires involvement. It might also be
cheaper in the long term than distro-hopping every time the distribution
in use takes an unwanted turn.

Of course, this will not fare well with people that chose GNU/Linux
because of the wrong impression that it is without cost.

[1] possibly even more so than other distributions, provided the desired
changes don't go against the Social Contract, etc.

Kind regards,

This is very interesting, I've always viewed Linux as 'the peoples' choice for an OS but watching these responses has made me think/realise that it's not really. Its development is driven by the biggest financial contributors - which will always be the corps. Due to it's open nature it is perhaps more susceptible to abuse/conflict in this area too. I guess I've been a little naive to that till this whole sysd thing.
