Debian and its clones MEPIS, one of the more popular Debian-derived distributions, may be moving in a new direction soon. MEPIS founder Warren Woodford is considering building future MEPIS releases from Ubuntu sources rather than from Debian. SimplyMEPIS 3.4-3, which is scheduled for release today, has been quite a challenge to build, according to Woodford. "It's taking up all my time, fighting the Etch pool... We've had a lot of trouble, because the Debian community has become so active, it's been difficult to get this out, so I'm looking at alternatives to getting out stable releases."

Exactly. But now we have the ubuntuites dictating that I must like Ubuntu, that I must use it, and if I dare even speak out that I dislike it, I'll get moderated down. Again, we have a spate of my comments being f--king moderated down by dimwit f--king idiots, for no apparent reason at all. We have the osnews.com spineless f--king staff doing f--k all. I might just continue to keep swearing all the time just to piss them off, because in reality, I want my account removed. This website has become so f--king useless, so f--king lawless that it's a waste of time even visiting it, let alone trying to make a sane comment.

I asked the staff a few weeks ago to remove my account, and they haven't even done so. Do I have to formally serve a subpeona on you guys to make yo do it? I can't stand this site anymore, and I can't stand the inability of the staff to ensure that things are done right.
