I was hoping for some discussion of concrete issues. for instance,
I have the impression debian uses something other than sysvinit -
does that work out well? is it a problem getting commercial
packages (pathscale/pgi/intel compilers, gaussian, etc) to run?
the couple debian people I know tend to have more ideological motives
(which I do NOT impugn, except that I am personally more swayed by
practical, concrete reasons.)
