Thanks.
I think of giving Salix a try for a few days now.
Gentoo keeps me busy enough, so neither Slackware nor any of the BSD's is an option right now.
Also looking more close at refracta-with-sysv (which, as far its me, isn't much work, as i know Debian, close to "in-and-out". At least what i have to do daily).
Hence Salix might take a few days, weeks or even months ...

The main reason I am doing all that stuff is so others that come to this thread see it's possible to dump Debhat. Ever hear of the 'comfortable shoe' syndrome? That's where you are in a relationship and you know you should get out but you don't because it feels like a comfortable pair of warm slippers, until those slippers give you toenail fungus, lol. If Debhat decides to adopt a CHOICE policy again, I'll consider coming back.

in my case: did abandon.

I am looking at the solution by refracta (fsmithred) and exegnulinux (by dzz), to give them feedback, but that is as close i will get to Debian the next couple of years.

In my case, the ship is abandoning the clown. ;)

Jumped ship already! I plan on running systemd free wheezy, at least until it isn't supported anymore.

I admit that I have added PC-BSD and freeBSD to my main machine, each on it's own partition. Gotta plan for the future...

I love the cartoon, it seems to sum up the situation nicely. Anyone else notice the ship has an HMS prefix, but the flag its flying is American?

I've been playing with TrueOS (a user-friendly derivative of FreeBSD) and I am happy with it. I am in the process of moving my Debian servers (and my client's servers) over to TrueOS. It's a fairly small learning curve to migrate from Debian to FreeBSD and makes for a more stable (as in less change) platform.

On another note I "want" to believe that the Debian people will do the right thing.

Thank you for that, saved the cartoon for historical reasons. :mrgreen:

This from Dragora's Wiki faq:
Dragora is an independent project for GNU/Linux distribution that was started from scratch without being based on an existing distribution project. We avoid having to depend or inherit the technical and ethical issues of a given distribution project. Since it is an independent project, we are not tied to purely commercial interest, purposes or decisions, which could negatively affect our user base.

*scratching head*, didn't that used to be Debian? :? :(

kelsoo, did you create the picture? Looks like it.
Thanks (if not, thanks for posting).

nother note: dragora is sure worth to have a look at. It ain't easy though (just another reason that makes it worth to consider, will keep out the idiots).
