Linux Like many OSNews readers, I use Ubuntu. I also use several less popular distros. What is it like to use these lesser-known distros compared to the dominant systems? How does running, say, VectorLinux or Puppy or PC-BSD, differ from using Ubuntu or Fedora? This article offers a few ideas. Obviously, it broadly generalizes about distros for the purpose of discussion.

If they start a software from scratch, it is closed source.

Well, Clang originated at Apple and is open source, so that's not entirely true.

But overall I agree, Apple is primarily a proprietary leaning company.
