The only solution is to make most distros die. Kill one linux distribution by implementing its added value in a mainstream distro and we are one step towards global domination.
Isn't the ultimate implementation of this idea to merge all versions of Linux into Windows?
Long ago, Bill Gates defended some Microsoft monopolistic actions by saying computers would be a lot easier to use if everyone had the same kind. Though there are obvious drawbacks to that, we're talking today about how right he was about that.
One reaction I had to the original comment is that it arbitrarily collects all Linux together and compares it to Windows, as one platform. Wouldn't it be more logical comparison to ask what it would take to make Fedora as easy to add stuff to as Windows? And then the answer is pretty simple: as many users as Windows has.
