Was an interesting read for me perhaps you will like it too.
There is a question/answer mail-list you may like too.

Both candidates having an endearing resume, I like Chris Lamb. Sounds like he's hands-on, never forgot the end user.
Plus Mehdi Dogguy has work commitments and seems more inclined toward bookkeeping.
Joey (Joey) has spoken (spoken) 8-p But I'm not a developer.

What do you all think?

he winner of the election is Chris Lamb.

His term will start on April 17th, 2017.

The details of the results are available at:
https://vote.debian.org/2017/vote_001

Congratulations to the winner and respect to the runner up.

If I understood Chris Lamb's words, he seemed to be advocating changes at Debian's archaic, snobbishly self-hating and sensory deprived forums.

This is a question, is it safe to say Debian is the world's most solid operating system? Hardware acceleration aside.

I don't think I would go that far even though I do use it and have tried some others.
I think it not being a corporate run distro pulls it to the top as I am sure there are still legal issues that can be avoided by not basing off of say RH for example.
Granted it has been around for quite awhile and it's reputation for being stable contributes greatly to the "forks" (if you will allow) by not having to start from scratch when making a "new" distro.
Personally, I wouldn't mind if they updated packages and the kernel a bit earlier. Most of the tweaks done to the debian "forks" are what I don't care for even though they may be using more current versions of packages and such.

Wow, amazing! I was there for Knoppix, but never further than the live CD. At the time I was dumbstruck a friend posted at a forum claiming to have no hard drive and was instead running off a CD! That was a watershed moment...

Yes it is amazing looking at the all the forks :)

It's free only if everybody in some whichever way contributes a little to keep it that way.
