Developers killed Linux

I think the first article linked above answers the question.

I read recently of the 87th distro based on Ubuntu. The writer asked why the developers believe 86 distros based on Ubuntu isn't enough.

If I were a software developer I'd have trouble thinking of any reason to produce 'a' Linux version.

give me a break!

Nobody killed Linux. Just stop with this crap!

Linux is now more alive than ever: on servers, desktops, tablets, phones, space stations, refrigerators etc.

Linux on the desktop rocks; not only has it evolved _tremendously_ compared to 10 years ago when I first started using it, but it is now seriously giving Windows and MacOS a run for their money. And I'm not even talking about Android, I'm talking about good, old fashioned GNU/Linux.

Gnome2 in recent years was more than usable, excellent really and now Gnome3 is finally getting to a point where it can match and surpass that.

The future is looking bright for Linux on the desktop, with its gazillion distributions.
