    EEK! my work has been used by others for profit! (Score: 2)

    when i first read the article about progeny i felt like i’ve been abused, but bit by bit i’ve started to feel that progeny is the best thing that ever happened to Debian (oh, i still wouldn’t use it, it’s a matter of principle =)

    ok, how many of you have noticed so much improvements in such a short time (yes, several months is a short time compared to release times of Debian). they have made autodetection fit in to theyre distribution, AND they are offering it to the Community! they have improved Debconf, and they are offering it back..

    for me (dispite my first impression) progeny is something that should be supported and if i get my hands on a CD i’ll buy it. It is the least i can do for Debian (and progeny).
