I don't use Linux, so I've always been baffled by this: why do you need to swap distros? What's up with this OS that everyone feels the need to jump around all the time? It's like a geek rite of passage to find the most obscure distro you can, it seems. I don't get it.

we dont need to, we want to.
From the fall of AOL to the rise of iComputing, we had a 12 year golden age where walled gardens were derided, people owned their own devices, and the landscape of the internet formed more or less naturally.
Nevermind things like WGA, TPM, DRM, the omni-present EULAs in nearly everything that the majority of humanity used, making backups of one's media was considered to be "theft", Windows(!?) was actually poised to take over the server room, decoding an encrypted file or a proprietary chip meant litigation and/or jail time, and many, many other examples...
Golden age, my ass.
if I had mod points!!!!!!!!!!!!!
