difference between distro produced by group vs. produced by single person
I have a question.
I was trying to choose a distro for a server, and I was seriously considering debian or slackware.
I have experince with both, and can work with both. But I was thinking about the future with the distro's.
If someone happens to the creater slackware, will the work go on on the O/S? Debian is not admined by a single person instead by a group, so i'm not sure if debian will have this problem.
I know this is probally the stupidest question, but i'm setting up a server for a company and am just trying to figure out which one is most likely to keep being worked on and updated.
I know both have an auto-updater, but slackware seems to lag behind sometimes.(they say slackware only picks the most mature packages, i don't know if thats true or if a single person can't do all the work to keep the distro updated).
my question is, is there any difference if a distro is maintained by a single person? or by a group? In the long run do you think it will effect the distro? or does it have no effect?
Any insight in this matter would help me alot. I'm sure their a flaw with my thinking, maybe someone can explain it a little more.
