In the News This 24/7 Wall Street article displays three common media ailments: hyperbole, a love for top ten lists, and an obsession with December predictions for the coming year (which off course OSNews is obviously also falling victim to), and there are some predictable losers on this list (Blockbuster Video, anyone?). I thought it would be an interesting topic for OSNews because three of the companies/brands are quite familiar to us: Palm, Motorola, and Sun Microsystems.

I call BS.
1. Debian has still the biggest developer base.
2. Ubuntu will have to push a certain amount of their stuff upstream(Debian) otherwise they have essentially forked Debian and have to do all of the work on their own.
3. Debian will have a release in 2010.
4. Debian is mostly moving in the right direction (with a little help from Ubuntu and others)
5. A lot of governments use Debian as their semi-official distro (Germany for example)
6. A lot of Ubuntu users in search of stability might switch to Debian (or Ubuntu devs will become DDs or DMs)

+ a few things I can't think of right now.
