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.)
