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!"

So you agree with the interviewee, article and rest of the comments then?

Not that you don't make a valid point, I just found your comment to sound like a response to an article claiming that all Linux based OS should be unified rather than responding to an article and comments that universally support distro individuality and free market competition.

No, i'm talking about the endless, moronic discussions that this news item will spawn.

There are too many distros and they are all the same
There are too many distros and they are all different
There's just too many, I cant chose
etc etc

true, it's sadly inevitable that someone is going to show up breaching the word of the "unified one true OS". I think your comment just came across as premtively heavy handed after the rest of the comments agreeing with the interviewee and article.

Here's both us hoping it doesn't follow the usual downward spiral though.
