Do people actually get paid for writing crap like that?
Zenwalk a "super-specialized" distro? No, it's a one-application-per-task distro, and you can install more stuff if you want.
INX is a very useful live CD for anyone wanting to learn the capabilities of the CLI.

Ha, pretty funny. If you were to take this seriously, then you would see the obvious flaw in his concept of distros. Distros are not created for a community of users that may or may not exist, but for the enrichment of the developer(s). Communities congeal around pre-existing distros. But then again if you were to take this 'seriously' you would see the steam rising off that pile.
