    The ratio of lines of documentation to lines of code is probably in favor of sysvinit by the virtue of it being so small. A similar case could be made for files containing documentation to files...

    While you might not be experienced, you are by no means a moron. An actual moron likely could not have asked the question that you asked.

    I will say that the technical ability of most Debian developers is below that of kernel developers like Ted T'so or core component maintainers like Roger Leigh. The majority are people who touch...
