ok,

The problem as I see it is people are putting in work on re-inventing the wheel again and again. Slapping their own badge on it and calling it a 'new distro'

There are plenty of features which could have utilized their skill to further the cause of linux as a desktop alternative.

instead they have created something which is little more than a differnt desktop on the same core

nothing is new nor evolved.

That is my problem with these 'distros' in general

I will remind you my original rant (which I concede it was) was because it was not a news worthy story.

Which I still feel, it was not
