No offence but I agree with article. I have felt very let down, as since the
wonderful potato has come, they have left slink high and dry. I have 1 slink
box, and currently it is in a poor state. Mainly due to the lack of support
on the mirror ftp's that carry slink package tree. It has got to the point,
that next week, I have scheduled to be onsite to rebuild the machine onto
Debian 2.2, as I dare not run the upgrade. I'd sooner rebuild it and be sure
it will work for months on end.
If and when woody does become the offical release, and if potato then
becomes how can I say, lacking in maintance. I am sure I will be moving any
such machines I admin, and future machines over to something else. I'd dare
say, a BSD OS of sorts. Either FreeBSD or OpenBSD.
Well it is late, and I think I should be getting back to sleep. But I just
couldn't resist stating something that is bugging me recently. Anyone else
have similar feelings with the state of Debian these days.
As much as I love Debian, I am loosing interest/faith rather quickly.
