Debian and its clones SimplyMEPIS, a very popular desktop Linux, is going to change back to using Debian Linux for its core from Ubuntu. In March of 2006, MEPIS founder Warren Woodford, decided to switch to Ubuntu from Debian for the next version of SimplyMEPIS, version 6.0. The plan was to use Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Long Term Service), a.k.a. Dapper Drake, as MEPIS' foundation. Things have changed.

I'm afraid OSN will regret this feature soon. If readers are able to mod up comments, they'll be probably also able to mod down in such high numbers.

For a couple of months we have a similar system on a national site (www.webwereld.nl) which uses the same system. And it's a horror!

Almost every discussion ends up in an mass flame war, because of the damn mod system.

All this time I used OSN as an example for a functional mod system. Unfortunately I lost that argument by now :-(

Hope you still have the option to turn back the clock, when it gets out of hand ;-)

And, oh this www4 styff, looks really darn cool Wow!
