The Ultimate Distro (Linux Journal)

the advantages of distribution forks in a Linux Journal article.
"This is one of free software's greatest and least-appreciated strengths: the fact that it can continue to evolve in an almost organic fashion, untrammelled by constraints of economics, or even feasibility. It is this fecundity that drives free software forward unstoppably, and that distinguishes it from the sterile code monster that is Windows, which, trapped within the carapace of its closed source, only slouches towards Redmond to be born every five years or so."
The article mentions the
Linux distribution timeline, which gives a graphical representation
of distribution forks.
