Debian Declining?

view story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – Raphael Hertzog recently asked via his email newsletter if Debian is "declining". He linked to this post, which indicates a steady decline in the number of Debian bugs filed, since 2006. Raphael infers that the reason is that there are fewer "direct users" of Debian, adding that "more and more admins are annoyed by the need to upgrade every 2 years and have switched to Ubuntu LTS releases with 5 years of maintenance". He concludes on a positive note by saying that there is no decrease in the number of Debian contributors.Comments? (HowTos)
