Lots Better

Personally, I think it'll will be lots better. I don't want to say that it couldn't be worse than 2010, but I'm sure looking forward to better times in my own life.

New distributions usually tend to remain similar in most ways to their parent distro, using the same package manager and maintaining similar philosophies. When I look at the family trees of Linux distributions one project stands out more than others: PCLinuxOS. Read more
