Linux

No question in my mind. There will be more fall-out similar to the likes of what happened to Fuduntu. Call it a consolidation, if you will.

It gave me pause for thought to realize that the choice one makes for a Distro should be given very special consideration.

For personal use and, particularly, when it comes to the business world, there are some critical questions which need to be answered before making that choice. I have come to realize that just a handful of things are important and that made Fedora 18 the obvious choice. So what attributes should one be looking for in a Distro?
