So you have different shells, init programs, VMs, package formats, made for different architectures (some of which are ancient) etc. Yes choice is good, but not to the point of hoarding everything. There is a real cost to providing too many choices.
A lot of times, having different tools that do same things creates problems. But rather tham drop something, mentality seems to be "hey lets create yet another thing to solve this problem ”. Each additional thing increas complexity exponentially because you have to make sure each thing does not break every other thing.
Part of the problem might be that Linux is community driven and not customer driven. Few members of a community incurr the cost of clutter, so everyone always wants everything, just in case they decide to use it someday. There needs to be a way to better allocate resources based on actual needs and available supply.submitted by BiH_USA_Activist

-I'm willing to pay (send paypal funds / gift voucher) to somebody that can help me :) -contact me here or add my skype "live:rekkke" or email me "email@example.com"
I'm going to be setting up a couple of servers with CentOS (6.5?) because I believe it is the best for what I am going to be doing.
I've tried doing it before but I always run into a lot of problems, that's why I'm looking for somebody that can give me some step-by-step instructions for the setup I need. Read on if you want to see what steps I'll need:
- Install the OS onto my server, via SSH (I have ssh program already) from Windows computer
- Install firefox/chrome
- Install vnc-server so I can view my sever via a VNC-viewer
- Install an up-to-date version of java 7 or 8 so I can run the program "Tribot" - when I was configuring my server before I installed Java 7 however when I tried to run this program it wouldn't let me open it with java, even though I installed it via root. I then tried to download and install Java, but I had nothing to open the installer with :/
- Install a desktop (any) to my server.
If anyone is willing to help me, I am willing to pay for this guide/information, my skype is "like:rekkke" and my email is "firstname.lastname@example.org", thanks! :)submitted by Attempt_2
