The trouble is they are all the same. Just different little bugs in different places for the
user to fall over.
Thats why every linux user has tried all the main distros (they just want something better)
only to find out that they are all pretty much the same. but they all introduce slightly
different little bugs in different places.
I dont want to stop innovation. But lets face it all distros are the same or certainly can be
made to act the same with very little effort. Application innovation should be encouraged and
if it has to fork then so be it. But it can still fork and be made to work in one distro so
any security patches doest mean the user has to switch distro or get a version from an unknown
source or build 20 different packages that are not in a given repository.
Or we could stick to the same process and linux will be great for servers but desktop users
(no matter how good linux performs on the desktop) will keep falling over those little bugs
that always will get through.
