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!"

RE: Distributions...

This is simply false... and there is work to ensure this is even more false going on...

Every distro uses the same upstream brances, all source code can be compiled without patches on another distro... if you only deal with binary packages, it can seem more separate, but that is the flaw of dealing with only binaries.
