Editorial After reading Adam Scheinberg's original article "The Paradox of Choice" and Kevin Russo's response, I want to add my personal comments to this discussion. I will quote Adam and Russo several times and pick up their arguments.

If you didn't see anything in the post but a willingness to argue, look again:

"And this is redundant beyond words. Distributions already do that. Last time I tried Fedora, just for instance - no preferences involved - it pretty much set up a singel choice of every thing. It also made it very clear that they think you should use gnome and not kde. In fact it's so gnome-centric it makes you jump through hoops if you want kde."

"This is already beeing done by novell, redhat userlinux and more. However, this is a far cry form your initial statement "Let me state that I'm all for removal of choice from linux", Let's see. Keywords. "Removal" "choice" "linux", nope, not a word about distributions."

To spell it out yet again:
Distributions already do what you want them to do!
Maybe you could at least once address this issue, thanks.
