    Read my lips, SLOWLY, CentOS uses RHEL SRPMS (sources) and recompiles them while trying to maintain binary compatibility. This means, my dear troll, that if RedHat uses GNOME 3, systemd or any other technology your-trollhod dislikes, CentOS will use the *same* SRPM (source), recompile it and use it *as is*. [1]

    Congrats for getting my vote in your nomination as next year's village idiot.

    "Since March 2004, CentOS Linux has been a community-supported distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by Red Hat. As such, CentOS Linux aims to be functionally compatible with RHEL."

    CentOS was never really an "alternative" anyway... it's major selling point was that it was 99.9% identical to RHEL, but completely free of cost. If it had diverged too much, they would have lost users...

    Only that #! is/was all about crunchified Debian stable.

    For unstable users there are plenty of playground distros, but it can be also only one which "Holding the world record with over 100 different editions and 70 window managers!"

    Does it not work somewhere?

    Also, was the twitter screenshot really necessary, especially the fact that it was of the whole window?
    That is original screenshot size (not mine), if one user uses wayland on phone and need to side scrolling because of the size i am really sorry about that.

    You can use Debian without systemd still, corenominal won't to a job around systemd for #! - that is true .

    The #! lead developer is recommending that its users transition to vanilla Debian and use tasksel/metapackages to quickly build a minimal system. That gives users more choice without them needing to completely customize package selection.
    I am an openbox user on Debian years before someone maded lxde around it and might be even before corenominal... at least no one needs to tell me that i do that 12 years ago and now too

    SystemD divided community that is, i don't care if it is good (or how usefull it is) or not.

    It's pretty obvious that his argument was that #! doesn't fill a gap anymore, really. It was just debian with some defaults changed. The omissions plus the sensationalized title grants Michael the "shittiest journalist of the year" award.
    What article did you read? The article is mostly a quote, which makes it very clear that the lead dev feels the gap has narrowed and has since been filled by other initiatives in upstream Debian. There's nothing wrong with the title either. Phoronix certainly has its share of sensational/clickbait articles and titles (see the recent one about Hurd), but this isn't one of them.
