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!"

One thing I've learned in my Windows adventures is to never, NEVER use the junk that comes preinstalled from the OEM. I always uninstall everything that comes preinstalled unless it's something I was planning to install anyway (which it usually isn't). Those "easier to use" network managers just muck everything up and are worse than both Linux's and Windows' managers, or at least worse than Ubuntu's, which I used and had a lot of trouble with at first, but then figured it out later on.
