Waving a <GRIN> over a statement may give you a pass with some people, but
not with me.

Again, why on Earth would I involve myself with a distro that I don't
really like when there are ones out there that I do?

Again (again), I was just trying to splash a little cold water on the
whole "Debian cures arthritis, rheumatism and migraines." thing.  It is a
fine distro for certain things, but anyone who offers it as a panacea (and
a lot of people do) is not being objective.
