Torvalds Rejects One-Size-Fits-All Linux

cliffwoolley Re:No its just that : (791 comments)

Agreed. A central desktop distro to rally around would be useful (perhaps unlikely, but useful).

Even more useful, though, in my opinion, would be a consistent package management system across distros. That way, we could choose a distro for a specialized-use case (e.g., servers, embedded systems, etc.) based on what packages it focuses its attention on and what its performance priorities are rather than based on which package management system it uses. Plus, bouncing back and forth between numerous different distributions -- one for each niche -- wouldn't be such a headache. (Now... which command was it that I use to update that package on this distro again? Argh.)

A "Bill of Lights" to Restrict LEDs on Gadgets?

cliffwoolley Re:Lights... (729 comments)

I was thinking something similar... some of us really *do* like all the lights. Of course, you could argue that those lights are "useful," whereas the lights that the article complains about are the "useless" ones. The flip side is that you could argue the "useless" lights wouldn't be there if *somebody* didn't like them... flash sells, what can I say?
