Fedora Core "Linux fans hope that the interface changes in Windows 8 will drive more users to Linux. But the open source operating system is facing interface challenges of its own. Part of the problem is that - after so much controversy within the Linux community - there are so many interfaces to chose from. But the new version of Fedora - a desktop focused version of Red Hat’s distribution of Linux - is offering users an easier way to choose between the many flavors of Linux GUI."

This does not matter for business.

The changes between distributions at the UI, code level, distribution formats, directory structure are forcing business to marry with a certain distribution.

This makes the process no different from the old days when we were evaluating HP-UX, DG/UX, Aix, Xenix, Solaris, ...

As for the open source part, the only thing most companies I work with care about, it that is means free as in "no need to pay".

The only ones that saw a value on it, was for creating an company internal distribution.
