Distribution quotes of the week

We should change the default desktop environment with each release so that each maintenance team gets to share in the fun! It's like a giant hazing ritual. :)
-- Russ Allbery

16 years old and still ever changing: Not even the name remains stable. What used to be called "deity" was announced as "Apt", first released as "APT", shipped as "apt-get" and "apt-cache", interpreted as "A Package Tool" and "Advanced Package Tool" and is now also available as "apt" … But the initial wisdom holds: "it's still a good word in its own right". And this word has surely influenced the way we manage our software on phones, servers and space stations. It also still stirs envy among users and developers outside the Debian universe – and rightly so! ;)
-- The deity team (apt 1.0 released)
