Eh, anyway, I've said my piece. The article is quite useless, it just says, "I had problems! It's the fault of package instability and focussing on features!" without any underlying support. Just blank assertions. And it's pretty clearly hostile, at least it seems so to me.
When we have something concrete, which I have an iota more hope for here on LWN than anywhere else, we can solve problems. Until then, it's just a bunch of fanboys arguing, which is also useless.
