Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I often read about there being yet another distribution, how they’re not needed, and of course, based on Ubuntu. At DistroWatch.com people have even told Ladislav Bodnar the site’s creator/owner that he shouldn’t allow all of these derivatives and have a stricter criteria for distributions listed at his site, on the waiting list or not. The last part I personally find insulting of people, telling someone how to do something that they pretty well pioneered that nobody had ever done on such a level before.
There’s a couple different groups of people that usually talk about this. What’s the first group’s biggest and pretty well only reason for this belief of too many distributions in our community? ‘It confuses new converts from other operating systems.’
