Too many

A lot of newcomers to Linux may be confuzzled as to why there are soo many choices for Linux Distrobutions- also called "Flavours"- out there. Well the answer is quite simple. There are just too many communites with differing opinions on what a Distro of Linux should have on it.
Take Ubuntu 9.04 for example. This community- along with Canonical- agrees that the interface should be simple, easy to use for Linux newcomers and clean of too many desktop icons. I agree with that opinion, therefore I use it.
However, since many newbies also use Ubuntu- it has become a "general" distro for gaming, working and many other activities.
Usually I make short little blog posts and this is no exception. If you want to find out more about what kinds of linux distros are out there, click the post title.
