Debian was going to be my choice for delivering a consistently stable , if not bleeding-edge, operating system.

Two brain-dead decisions this year have made me question their overall direction. Those decisions are somewhat inter-related, and are the following, in order of most to least disruptive:
The move to systemd as the operating, sorry, init system.
The move to GNOME3 as the default desktop

These router-hubs each keep a "shadow copy" of every document (shut up shut up SHUT UP!) that flows through them for months (what the hell?) and that they could find the document they needed by going to some random data center with one of these router-hubs (it hurts to type that) and getting the shadow copy.

They're probably not far from the truth there but more by accident than anything else. The "router-hubs" are just installed and maintained by the NSA.

Lol "rack-mounted LED lights".

So your position is that a woman should have the right to kill her offspring if it is convenient for her to do so. Now I assume that you don't think that anyone else should have the right to kill her offspring if they wish to.

Therefore your argument boils down to the belief that the life of a child has no value unless the mother says it does.

No matter what *you* think, that is a deplorably barbaric position.

Wait, did you say legs? You mean those things that angle the keyboard towards you?

They force the wrists into an awfully extended position that shouldn't be maintained for any length of time. I'm pretty sure they're designed to help hunt and peck typists see the keys a little better.

I often break them off before deploying new keyboards.

Other than that, I agree with your post wholeheartedly!
