I plead slightly guilty to being miffed that my free ride has gone. 

Yes but that's not our fault that you are dropping RHEL...THat's your decision.
Going with debian is no different than being with RH, neither are doing XF86 right now, that's just a cost issue.

Still if I were in Europe and going t pick something non-current, I'd go with SUsie for the support & Egbert which I think is a net bonus over the backwards debian. If I were in the US and needed a name, I'd of course pick Slack.  Perhaps Slackware will catch on elsewhere and then it would be a net-gain all around.

Keep a good thought.
