Re: [News] Many GNU/Linux Distributions Are Great; Diversity Needed

After takin' a swig o' grog, Roy Schestowitz belched out
  this bit o' wisdom:

   "I think multiple distributions aren't just a good thing, I think it's
   something absolutely required," Torvalds tells DistroWatch.com.

   "We have hundreds of distros, and a lot of them are really for niche
   markets. And you need that - simply because different markets simply have
   different requirements, and no single distro will take care of them all."

Well, now we know that Hadron is no Linus.

Linus uses Fedora, he tells us.


Finding the occasional straw of truth awash in a great ocean of confusion and
bamboozle requires intelligence, vigilance, dedication and courage.  But if we
don't practice these tough habits of thought, we cannot hope to solve the truly
serious problems that face us -- and we risk becoming a nation of suckers, up
for grabs by the next charlatan who comes along.
