As I mentioned earlier:
- comp.lang.python(.announce)
- wxpython user list

The question also pops up on the ubuntuforums, so it could be announced
there as well.

No, it is elitist to say, "Debian is the only good distribution, the only truly
GNU/Linux distribution worth having. All others are for the uneducated masses,
who don't care about being right. We are smarter and better than they are,
because we choose Debian - all hail the mighty Debian!"

That would be elitist.

Chris

According to St. IGNUcious himself (aka RMS), at a talk I saw him give
last Thursday, Debian isn't a true GNU/Linux distro because it includes
non-free software.

I'm not saying I agree with him on this, but it is his opinion that
there are only a few truly free distros out there. He named them and
I've forgotten them, but they were not any names I recognized or had
heard of before and I'm familiar with at least the top 25-50 names.

So if I chant that 24 times before bed every night and 24 more times
when I wake up, that's a bad thing???

No, it is elitist to say, "Debian is the only good distribution, the only truly
GNU/Linux distribution worth having. *All others are for the uneducated masses,
who don't care about being right. *We are smarter and better than they are,

because we choose Debian - all hail the mighty Debian!"

That would be elitist.

http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/gobuntu
Gobuntu is a GNU/Linux operating system, derived from Ubuntu, that
endeavors to adhere to the Free Software Foundation's four freedoms and
intends to provide a base for other free software platforms to build
upon with minimal modification required. It does this by only including
open-source non-restricted software. This means there will be no
firmware, drivers, applications, or content included in Gobuntu that
does not include the full source or whose license does not provide the
right to use, study, modify, and redistribute the body of work.

Do Gentoos mate? I thought they reproduced by spores.
