Oh No, Too Many Distros?

Filed under
Linux

Fossforce's Christine Hall said recently that those declaring "too many distros" are just spreading FUD and then ran a poll. Their results were surprising, too surprising. So, I ran my own poll. Turns out, my results are surprising too.

Fossforce's poll showed a majority of respondents said there were too many distros, 29% thought the number is about right, and 19% said there were too few. They were "flabbergasted" and "surprised" as was I. The results had to be an anomaly. So, I ran my own poll to see what I'd get. My results show no anomaly at Fossforce after all.
