    Yeah, that's totally what Debian needs... Not. Hopefully you'll move to Devuan along with the rest of the lobotimized users.
    Bad thing the stomach acidity, isn't it?

      Yeah. Debian should abandon the packaging system it created, which is also the most widespread and successful package manager in the Linux world, and replace it with some obscure technology that nobody uses. They should support elogind and other useless me-too projects Just Because(tm). They should target their distro at greybeard VUAs who are nostalgic of the 1970s on one hand, and l33t teenagers on the other hand. Great ideas, it's a sure way not to be lobotomised </sarcasm>.

      Are you by any chance the lead developer, release manager or technical director of some distro? If so, please let us know which one so that we can avoid it at all costs in the interest of public mental health.

        Here's a (semi) serious idea. I think that Devuan has had a very positive effect on the Linux world at large. Thanks to it, all the Init Freedom warriors and other freaks triumphally isolated themselves in self-imposed exile and left the rest of the community alone. So maybe we could use the same approach here. We could create an official Progressive fork of Debian, guaranteed 100% woke, diverse, inclusive, LGBTIQWXYZ1234-oriented, non-offensive and politically correct to death. In order to be able to download it, you would first need to click on Check My Privilege and then accept an EULA in which you would explicitly acknowledge that computers are nonbinary.

        Then maybe SJWs would flock there (if only because it would become impossible for them to be seen using any other OS), they could obsess about CoCs until the cows come home, hold developer conferences on whether "kill" should be renamed, and redefine the absolutely triggering terminology of master/slave. Meanwhile, normal people would be able to live in peace and relative sanity.

          I think the CoC is a great introduction, especially when you have to put together people from different cultures, also cultures that are totally backward to accept, or understand, what should be the minimum civil rights (to not say also social) acceptable.

              No it should not. Debian is for stability and serious environments. If you want new and thrilling change distro please.

                  He's in the haunted hall more commonly known as the Global Ignore List, a place where you speak, but your voice never exits the hall. Not even Michael with his sound amplifier can hear him.
