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."

I have never heard such an insane statement in my life,

"One can form perfectly valid opinions about things even if they never have used it or done it. Experience is not everything"

I personally use Windows, FreeBSD and Ubuntu, I have tried Fedora Core, Suse and older versions of Red Hat, I learned to make choices based upon experience and knowledge, not beliefs and opinions. Experience is what gives us the ability to learn from our mistakes, and to overcome them. The argument you just used is the same argument that a lot of windows users use when they talk about linux, so welcome to a very large club
