Blah... This is the same as with the Gentoo guy... He came, and started a distro, and then left...

Anyway, he did nothing for Debian for some time, so this is not tragedy...

I wonder if he will be able to help me out with the Free Sun solaris 10 DVD media kit I applied online for over two months ago....?

I'd like to point out that since Debian is not, and hasn't been for a long time (if ever) a Linux only distro, it's not any kind of contradiction for Debian's founder to go work for Sun. There's already a Debian GNU/Solaris distro.

As well as a Debian Gnu/HURD and Debian Gnu/FreeBSD, I say all the better, choices are never a bad thing, and as long as they're all POSIX kernels, no harm done, right?
