Debian and its clones Last September, some of the Debian Linux distribution's leadership wanted to make sure that Etch, the next version of Debian, arrived on its December 4th due date. Almost two months later, though, according to the February 17th Release Critical Bug Report memo to the Debian Developers Announcement list, there are still 541 release critical bugs.

Regarding the article

The article tries to make it look like Debian has a problem. Of course it has, but so does Ubuntu, Fedora etc.

Other distros just release at a certain date, no matter the quality of the packages. Debian does not.

It matters to have both Debian and distros like Ubuntu for people who care less about the individual package quality and more about usability / ease of use.
