Debian and its clones "This interview was conducted with Martin F. Krafft, the author of 'The Debian System'. Despite Debian GNU/Linux's important role in today's computing environment, it is largely misunderstood and oftentimes even discounted as being an operating system which is exclusively for professionals and elite users. In this book Krafft, explains his concept of Debian, which includes not only the operating system but also its underpinnings."

I have told the publishers. It would help if you told me which stores you searched.

I don't understand your comment about the community being the leading weakness, but I am curious, so if you care...

About my Ubuntu recommendation, please also see a comment I left one Slashdot: http://xrl.us/jm47 . Anyway, if Ubuntu starts to become incompatible with Debian, they'll have a whole 'nother thing coming. They are dependent on Debian, very dependent. Going away would be foolish, or even suicidal.

Finally, Ubuntu and Mepis and others are specialisations of Debian, which is the "universal" operating system. That's what we would like it to be, and that won't change. If Debian starts to specialise, we're not only going to lose those derivatives previously specialised in the area, but also those that now lack our universality (due to the specialisation).

And I don't think I am a leading developer of Debian really.
