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!"

Well, there are certainly different compile options that would benefit a desktop vs a server... that is perfectly fine, because the usage of a desktop vs a server is entirely different...

The whole is still the same codebase though, so its sort of irrelevant what you choose to compile into your kernel.

Again, one size doesn't fit all, so choices are provided.
