    In Conclusion

    It's not that we hate you (unless we do). It's just that we have nothing to offer you, and you have nothing to offer us.

    Why did they even put up a website? To tell people about their super exclusive distro that we "don't even want to try"

    Nice announcement *grumbles*

    What a terribly snooty sounding web site. Linux snobbery goes to a whole new level.

    Looks cool, I've checked it out a bit and done some research. Will probably install it when it gets an init system.

    I don't think it's fair or accurate to lump everybody who uses Linux into one big "Linux" block. These guys are scratching their itch, not making a standard.

    Well, looking at the Planet linked to on the exherbo website, there's a post entitled Why Exherbo was announced which says

    Exherbo was announced because some elements of it will be discussed at an upcoming conference. Rather than having a blank page and let people start various rumors it seemed wise to at least let people know what was going on. But in an effort not to hype it above what it was, we didn’t hand over all available information and code.
    Unfortunately Slashdot picked up the announcement because some tard decided it would be a great idea to submit it to them. We did not do that ourselves because, as we state on the website, we have no need for users at the moment and exherbo won’t fulfill users demands for the foreseeable future. That is not to say exherbo won’t ever become useful but we’re not there at the moment. Some very basic things still need to be worked out properly.
