[News] GNU/Linux No Longer a Game of Just a Few

Hash: SHA1

Sharma: Big-Name Distro Disenchantment

,----[ Quote ]
| The results are plain to see. All three of the big names â Fedora 
| 11 âLeonidasâ, Ubuntu âJaunty Jackalopeâ and Mandriva 2009.1 âSpringâ â have 
| taken different approaches to reducing boot times, and boy has it worked. 
| Booting up is also much cleaner, with service start-up messages hidden behind 
| beautifully crafted splash screens. The desktop itself loads in about 30 
| seconds, and the remainder continues to load in the background, which is 
| exactly how things should be.      



Is too much choice getting in the way of Linux' acceptance?

| Think about it for a moment. Let the idea sink in. Now, would you be willing
| to give up your favorite distribution for this to happen? Or would you be
| willing to accept the idea that your favorite might have to become nothing
| more than a variant of the âofficial distributionâ? Because we all know that
| even this wouldnât stop the open source community from continuing to create
| the way they do. But even if forks of the âofficial distributionâ were
| developed, there would still be âthe oneâ that companies and new users could
| migrate to and know what they were getting, know that they could get
| world-wide, standardized support.


Torvalds rejects one-size-fits-all Linux

| Linus Torvalds has rejected the argument that Linux developers should pool
| their resources behind a single distribution.
