Canonical really should start thinking about firing Dustin.

He keeps making bad decisions, like that time he tried to write a badly written hit piece on Alpine. Now he is cramming ads into your Ubuntu machines' MOTD.

No, really:

I still have to thank Dustin for that one, we had like 10x more traffic after that hit piece than usual for weeks.

@kaniini Jesus, how pathetic. It's almost like nobody with technical background has read that before publishing...

@barthalion it backfired so bad for him, because basically anyone technical reading it was more like "SIGN ME UP"

@barthalion some concerns from the debian camp are legitimate (such as lack of a rapid response team for security updates), but I am working to make that happen asap.
