Firstly, Terry Pratchett rules. Secondly, I am aware of the volunteer
status of DeMuDi. but Free has done all of DeMuDi himself to date.
"Since April 2003 I've done everything by my own, with the financial
support of the
former sponsor. If Canonical could sponsor me or someone else to keep
working part time on it, that would be great, and I think both parties
would benefit this (see below)."
In the end, all I meant was that one of the reasons I am not using
DeMuDi is that its future is indeed uncertain. Lots of volunteer
projects end up dying. SourceForge is a ghost town of could've-beens.
As I said to Free, I don't want to see DeMuDi die or fall behind -
hence why I contacted Canonical about sponsoring him. I respect him
and his work. I just don't prefer to use it.
I believe in making other distros better too. The other reasons I
chose Ubuntu are all preference.
BTW, Warty sucked balls. I tried it and went back to Debian. Hoary had
everything I needed and more, so I stuck with it. And Breezy is even
better. I am hoping Dapper shatters my expectations, considering
they're pitting it against Vista and want it to be very extra
polished. I guess time will tell.
