Debian and its clones Earlier this month, we reported that Debian had announced a new release schedule; a freeze during December, a release some time in the first half of the following year. After outcries from the Debian community, the December freeze aspect of the plan was reversed. Since most of the ire about this situation seemed to be directed towards Ubuntu, Mark Shuttleworth decided to step in and offer to put several Canonical employees to work on Debian instead of Ubuntu.

I don't see Debian biting on any of this. It always seemed to me that Debian was about stability and doing their own thing. Not success, not cutting edge, not involvement with the prop software world.

I think, or maybe I've been out of the Debian loop for too many years, that this is going to fall on deaf ears. I never thought Debian devs cared much about success and market share or competition. But instead a quality stable product created in ways that Debian collectively sees fit.

Who knows? I'd love to find out. Comment away!
