As announced on my blog , I will soon move from my beloved Debian etch (or testing) to the upcoming Fedora Core 5.
How did I come to take such a decision?
I love several things in Debian. I run a Debian etch on my laptop, my old PC runs a Windows 2000 unconnected to the Net and is used for gaming; my company's servers run on Debian sarge except for the webserver, hosted somewhere else that run a nicely tuned Free BSD. Debian to me means the experience of one of the most authentic GNU and Free Software systems and in some sense, lifestyle.
At my house, I'm a dad who uses Linux. I have some kids. They're starting to grow up and go to more questionable sites on the Internet (on urging from friends) and it's my job to police it. I am one of these dads who think that kids get enough exposure to bad stuff from TV, movies, and the public schools, and I don't think they need any more influences until their minds are mature enough to handle it. I also limit the kinds of movies they watch and the kinds of TV shows too. With my oldest child, I have let her watch a bit more than her younger brother, so I mean to say that I'm not the meanest dad in the world. I really do let a kid grow up -- I just try to wait until I think their minds are mature enough to wrap around certain concepts and strong enough to fend off peer pressure.
