You're wrong, and you're again completly ignoring the technical content

When distro people screw up and the support issues land here, I feel
justified to express my displeasure of having to clean up their messes,
especially since they actually charge money and have a support and QA
staff who have a job to do.
You're the one who is dragging this on, and being insulting and not
actually having any content in your attempt at rebuttals, so your tone
is far far worse than mine.
So yes, let's end this, and next time, stick to facts instead of your
emotional attachment to your distro.
