While I don't agree with everything thing he says, he's at least entertaining.
Previous poster: I agree, when there is an old PC that needs a boost, find a low-resource distro and they work well. EG you would not load up Linux Mint on an old dunger. Therefore you need some choice. But Linux has developed into overkill. Distros come and go willy-nilly. EG I found a lovely distro called Fubuntu and thinking it would be perfect for an old laptop here. Go to Fubuntu forum to find the project is now closed. This happens time and again, and all the good work of some folks is being wasted.
I used to write software and developed a program called back4winxp, it had lots of features and included versioning which was fairly unique in its day. It was one of the top 10 user backup softwares for a while, because it worked, and worked well.
Thats the most important thing IMHO to have a good distro (like Mint) which works and works well, and is recognised as a standard for Linux.
Seems like Bryan Lunduke saying that if the skilled programmers for Linux combined, the development would be much more effective and less fragmented, surely that makes sense. Unfortunately, the key would be to get individuals to agree to work together.
