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!"

Today the short answer, for the most, is Ubuntu.


..and it wasn't all that long ago that Ubuntu burst on the scene with the same comments saying "oh no...not another one!"

Survival of the fittest. If a distro comes along that people connect with, it will find its' niche. If not, it will wither and die. As it should.

Ubuntu works best with most hardware and is very straightforward. I've been converting Windows users for months - those people without specific needs like AutoCAD's and Photoshop's - and they're loving the experience.

I tried others and just failed. That's the beauty of Ubuntu. It actually works!
