For the anecdote: one of my clients has been the official maintainer of the French Debian documentation, and he's left Debian just because of that, because according to him, Debian users were "the talibans of the FOSS world". I've been using Debian for years, both personally and on clients' servers and desktops. I know my way around it quite well, but as far as the human side of a distribution is concerned, I'm all for the Slackware way of doing things. I think Debian has a considerable following in France because the French are world champions in bureaucracy, worse than the Eastern Block before 1989.

On this risk of going more off-topic - I read your bug report. As much as I respect your work, I believe it was totally uncalled for to mention "how I do things in Slackware and I expect the same for Debian" in a Debian bugzilla. Really not necessary IMO.

Regards.

So am wondering what guarantees there are for Slackware's future?
Its own philosophy is enough guaranty.
Today it's Slackware Linux. If Linux becomes too unbearable it can be Slackware Minix, whatever.
Versions get outdated.
Linux kernel can get bloated.
But good philosophy... it goes to eternity.

A bug report in Slackware looks like "Hey, ypinit can't find stuff under /usr/lib64" or "Hey, adduser should add a user to the scanner group also", and that's it. Wait a couple hours or days or weeks, and eventually you'll see it corrected in the ChangeLog. And I mentioned it to the Debian guys, because they systematically make you jump through burning loops before even acknowledging a bug as a bug.
