Re: Debian snuggles up to Fedora?

You know something that stands out as clearly incorrect about this
article is "Progeny may have provided the catalyst needed to create a
distribution of unprecedented quality; it is now up to open source
software developers to follow through."

Give credit where credit is due.  Red Hat created the catalyst by
releasing anaconda and creating Fedora.  

Progeny/Debian are just recognizing that anaconda is an excellent
installer and that they have sorely needed this with there distribution
for some time.
