When you have wrapped your head around that, then come back with a real comment. Until then, you are sprouting nonsense.


Well, except that (big fallacy follows) I was a co-developer for a commercial distribution, and know how much support load this multitude of options caused. And then we were even recommending users to restrict their use to our blessed environment. It is a real problem, and Linux (except for very restricted environments such as Android) is losing users because of this. Ask the man in the street who one tried Linux ;) .
