I had already looked these up for Kat, but accidentally sent them to her 
off-list.  (I must have pressed r not l)  Here they are again, Kat:  In fact, 
here is the whole of the post I sent off-list by mistake.

He is knowledgeable, helps on this list and has been using it for a long time.

GIYF.  Do try to use the occasional accurate fact.

As David says, If you don't like Debian, use something else.  If you do like 
Debian, use it.  But do stop winging and blaming Debian for all your own 
mistakes.

See above.  Why don't you EVER try to get some facts?  Just Google 
occasionally.
