Linux Distributions Compared
Linux distributions have changed a lot in the few years they have been around. The Linux File system Standard has improved their ability to inter-operate; binaries compiled for one distribution are now more likely to run on another distribution, because standard files are more likely to be in the same place from one distribution to another. As distributions have competed, bugs have been worked out of all of them; thus users have benefited from distributions they haven't even used.
Since no single distribution provides an optimal environment for everyone, each distribution contributes something to the pot. Furthermore, having distributions targeted for different kinds of users means that no distribution is pressured into complete mediocrity by the attempt to be all things to all people. It's a well-worn clich that to do all things equally well is to do nothing at all well...
