Poll Says Too Many Distros

Filed under

We’re flabbergasted. Usually when we run a poll we’re not surprised by the answers. We’re certainly surprised by these results, however.

A month ago, on September 2nd to be exact, we asked you, “Does GNU/Linux offer too many choices? Are there too many Linux distros?” As answers we offered the numbers one through five with one meaning way too many, five meaning way too few and three meaning just about right. As we expected, number three received the most votes, but not by a large margin.

An even 100 of you picked the middle ground and said the number of Linux distros is just about right.
