Too Many Distros

Not at all

Linux is designed to be a free/cheap platform which anyone can base products on. The quantity of those products in such a system is irrelevant.


I personally think that freedom in development is the essential strength of GNU/Linux. Limiting choice and diversity is a sure way to reduce an incentive to contribute to the system; we need many different competing (but collaborating) options, including in file systems, desktop environments, graphical servers, etc. They just need to interoperate and stay free in the copyleft sense.
