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!"

From the discussion it seems like we have only two choices, merging into one distro or having many small.

What about the idea of one distro simply becoming popular, big and a lot used and becoming the "standard Linux".

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if that happens if/when Linux gets mainstream. Whether that is going to be Ubuntu, Fedora/Red Hat or SLED (or something else) I don't know.

What do you think?
