Spotify migrating their ~5000 servers to Ubuntu from Debian

It looks like some both good and bad news has been generated today. Debian LTS takes another shameful blow as today the Debian project has learned that Spotify will not be considering debian-lts, but instead it's too late because they are currently in the process of migrating all of their servers to Ubuntu 14.04.
