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.
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.
Going forward, Tux Machines does not have ads. Instead it relies on readers' support and is run as a public service.
