The Secret Identities of Linux Distributions

Filed under
Linux

In the embedded space, there's been a lot of talk about whether Android is fragmented, and if that fragmentation will ultimately hurt Android, because developers won't know what version to code for and users won't know which one to use.

This goes beyond the cute little green robot icon... that's branding, which I've discussed before. But branding is part of a broader sense of identity--something else that Android has in spades.

Identity, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder, and can vary from different perspectives. I, for instance, look at my mother and see... my mother. But I know that there's thousands of people out in the world who see her as their teacher, or their child's teacher. To them, that's her core identity. Of course, neither one is wrong, but unless I complete my plans for world domination, I have a suspicion my mother will be remembered by more people for what she taught than for being my mom. And that's cool.
