Linux With Linux traditionally coming in many, many flavours, a common call among some Linux fans - but mostly among people who actually do not use Linux - is to standardise all the various distributions, and work from a single "one-distribution-to-rule-them-all". In a recent interview, Linus Tovalds discarded the idea, stating that he thinks "it's something absolutely required!"

Yes, it keeps Canonical honest and on their toes. They have to innovate, integrate and polish like the best.

If they would stop people would run to the distro de jour without hesitation.

Linux users are Linux users for a reason, not because of inertia (windows) or faith/marketing (OSX). (OK OK .. It sounds like flamebait .. but it isn't.)
