ZDNet UK Article

The article doesn't say much new, it really just says
linux is just the "New Thing" (Just like windows was so
many years ago) and that it will factionalize when money
becomes involved. And its already started to happen.
My take? Bring it on! As long as a base system of kernel, libs,
and utilities is compatible
accross distributions, divide all you want. Debian for Hackers.
Red Hat for Suits. Slackware for loons. And the 28 other assorted
distributions for whoever wants them. Its about options
and as long as we adhere to a minimal set of requirements,
everyone will be happy. Am I crazy?
