Taking a page from Redhat's "let's break it if we can" upgrade policy,
Debian appears to be switching from glibc to eglibc:
Of great concern is that this library is not guaranteed to be binary
compatible with glibc. I'm all for progress, not so much of a fan of
pointless changes that lead to regressions and broken code.
What are Canonical's plans for 9.10+? Follow Debian into the abyss,
hoping for greener pastures in the Great Beyond? Does anyone think
maybe it's time to provide some stability for the
corporate/institutional IT folks who have stuck their necks out to argue
for open source solutions?
