Embracing distro diversity

Posted 10-27-2010 at 12:29 AM by xri

When using a particular distro, I've tried to stick to it, under the belief that my learning process would be easier without different directions to solve one problem. Therefore, my distro of choice (and that has been changing over time) has usually been the "best distro" at the time.
