- Linux distribution?
- Linux Desktop environment?
- Linux email client?
- Linux web browser?
Myself and Jordan were talking about this yesterday. I am all for more than 1 of each whereas Jordan was just for one. It was interesting to see the arguments on both sides. Today I asked the Chicago GLUG guys on IRC the same question, and it had very similar results as mine and Jordan’s conversation.
So I ask you, is having thousands of distributions bad or good, and why? What about desktop environments?
My arguments all stem from the same topics.
- more options mean more choices – more choices leads to stiffer competition
- more options means stiffer competition – stiffer competition means better software
I am interested in hearing what others have to say. If you blog about it, link back here so we can track it. Thanks!
