Why So Many Linux Flavors?

Posted by david on 01 November 2018 at 5:53 pm

I don't work in an IT job, we use IT, but that's it. I told a coworker I am testing different Linux distributions and he seemed confused. I guess people who dont use Linux dont know there isn't just one. He finally asked why there are so many and I thought about for a minute. Linux is about personal freedom, kind of like buying a house or a car. It's about preference, options, and, ultimately, opinions. The difference, though, is this freedom is free. It's not about financial status or social status (per se), your Ferrari distro isn't someone else's. It's about choice and that is what makes Linux the best for me.
