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!"

Multiple Distros? Yes, but...

I'm supportive of Linux having multiple distros, HOWEVER, I believe it's time to ditch X and go a much slimmer way of doing all things windowing. It would be nice to see a standardized GUI as part of a loadable module for Linux. It would also be nice to be able to do everything inside that GUI without editing archaic config files. This is one of the big reasons Windows is so successful. Configuration a web server is a matter of right clicking, hitting properties, and changing certain items. Of course that would never happen...
