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."

And your off topic reply's point is? Amazing how an off topic reply doesn't get moderated down.

Wow, you're so dense I'm surprised other stupid people don't orbit around you!

I'll find a link to the story of Chicken Little and include it, but essentially it's the story of a little chicken who ran around crying and flailing their limbs about in anticipation something that wasn't really happening, which they only became convinced of because they had such a slanted and limited viewpoint in the first place.

Does that sound at all familiar to you?

Here's a pleasantly presented version of the story, as promised...
