Haha... back in 2003 we are?

What about the hacking of Debian servers? They've been compromised more often. Or the updated goofs at Ubuntu, or the constant breakage of binary interfaces in Fedora?

If users left a solution because of every little thing that went wrong, we would still be waiting for lightning to roast the mastodont we brought home.
