linux.com: When I started using GNU/Linux eight years ago, I was dumbfounded to encounter Debian users who started their day by upgrading their entire system. Never mind that this idea is an nuisance and an unwarranted assumption -- let alone that constant upgrades are unsuitable to many styles of computing and contrary to responsible system maintenance. They're an active hazard.
adamw’s blog: Lenovo is running a poll to see which distribution people would prefer to see pre-installed on future Lenovo systems. A few days back we were languishing in 8th place or so with under 1,000 votes. We’re now running a clear third behind Ubuntu and Debian. Work on 2008 continues at a relentless pace.

beranger: I was asked to fix a small web application on a remote server. The "deputy sysadmin" (a PC technician) wrote me something like this: «Our SSL certificates expired, so we renewed them and I had my boss re-enter the certificates. Since then we can get to the login page for XXX, but it comes up with a blank screen after you have authenticated.
