Back to the original quiestion....

I really don't think "Ethical Backing" enters into it. Debian and Gentoo are two different (though oddly complimenting) ways of distributing software.

This as I write the post using Gentoo installed on my Sony Viao across a wireless link using bleeding edge drivers that make Debian "Unstable" look like "Potato".

Mooooo Moooooo (Flushing toilet) looook a swirly......
