Where have you seen distributions collaborate,
lately ? or at all ?
And don't tell me Debian and Ubuntu, that's abuse (Ubuntu abusing
Debian, not the opposite), not collaboration.
Ubuntu is probably the single biggest contributor to Debian, both
in terms of money and manpower.
#define quality suse
#define quantity debian_ubuntu
Quality is better than quantity.
Perfectly acceptable definitions, but It wasn't the point I was
I was merely pointing out that Canonical has spent more money
and staff time contributing to Debian than anyone else, and in
so doing, raised it from a minor player with a political axe to grind
to a major player.
I don't like everything they have done, but then I don't like
everything Novell has done for Suse either.
As an aside, I don't have any major quality issues with Kubuntu
and Xubuntu - at least none that rise to the level of the broken
ZMD debacle of recent history. It would probably be polite to
have pot wait a couple of releases before calling the kettle black.
