No it wouldn't. And I don't think you mean 'fork' either - distributors try hard not to actually fork things.
There are good reasons why Red Hat and Debian (for example) are not identical. Nevertheless they are highly compatible and you can generally use either if all you want is a 'linux system'. Choice is not a bad thing - it's good, and choice is not incompatible with interoperability.
Which one, overweening, system would you have us all use?
