Tokyo Joe The problem with variety (480 comments)

I havn't checked to story yet (/.ed) but I wonder if the world needs another OS.

Currently we are strugling to get Linux taken seriously (people in the lame NT world think an app runnig on RedHat needs to be ported to Debian!) even though Linux appears to be out selling the Mac, quiet an achievement for something that can be had for free...

So, with Linux approaching real market share, do we want to fragment, not into distros, but free OS'es? I have seen requests to Open the Amiga OS...

In my view Linux need shelp to push on, we need at least 35% share, and no more unless we want to become the mainstream. I like being a well know underdog, thats why I can't programm on windows :o)
