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!"

What's the point ?

What is the point of these Linux distributions when all you face after the login is KDE4 or GNOME2?

As far as I can tell, I still can't find an application in KickOff, and I cannot lasso files in listview in Nautilus.

The Linux distro galore should be left aside by the adoption of an accepted and fully user-friendly desktop UI. (They do have Windows-classic to teach them this lesson.)
