Good morning Rob,
Your message is what i am expecting to receive...
Please don't judge me if you are a dedicated developer of Debian. I
love and I am using it since the first versions, but I never come to
this list because I am not welcome in groups in my life, and will be
no different here. And i promisse I you get out from here the faster
as I can, I just can't believe what you are doing to Debian...
In older Debian versions, I am able to just do this:
Debian must have a option during the installation a option like
"Legacy mode" that install sysvinit, net-tools, and etc this will
make everyone here happy.
Best regards and thank you for freely supporting me.
Now, im just gone.
