        The illusion of a democracy in a corporation. That sounds so cute. I wish the luck.

          don't forget most of work in Debian are made by canonical works, Debian without canonical is nothing, only a ilusion, like fedora without redhat or opensuse with suse

            What are some examples of this? Debian seemed to be doing fine before Canonical. I'm sure Debian owes a fair amount of it's desktop userbase to Canonical making Linux more approachable as a whole, but what are they doing that directly benefits Debian?

              As with most Ubuntu things, in the end they always come back on their decisions to do something different. It only takes a long time.

                Debian without Canonical is Debian.... not an illusion at all. Ubuntu developers do good things that benefit Debian , but the insane choices that Canonical does is really bad... not beneficial to anybody except maybe Microsoft.

                  That picture thou



                  Ubuntu is like a "love letter noir", after following them and using them for a decade "our love is not meant to be". I really wish they would have gone the SUSE / OpenSUSE model and "cut the community loose" when it was at its strong point with strong autonomy.

                  My prejudice against the 6-month release cycle will stand until the end of time. It's important to have goals but IME with Always-On-Devices updates should be rolled out "When they're done" instead of throwing some bug-sandwich at users. You get the bug-sandwich without any of the benefits of rolling release either way, at least if you help fix bugs in rolling the fixes come in a week or two instead of 6+ months.

                    Canonical’s desktop team does a lot of packaging work on Debian. This is really awesome and helps most Debian based distributions.
