Embracing distro diversity

Posted 10-27-2010 at 01:29 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.
However, much later than other users (apparently), I've come to the realization that there seems to be a certan set of distros better suited for a particular job, and with some basic knowledge of Linux in general, using one or the other in different settings is not necessarily difficult. So, my current position is that all distros are essentially good (provided they are mature enough), and each has its pros and cons, like everything in life. I am willing to learn whatever different procedure any particular distro has. It not only does not cause confusion, but instead seems to help my general understanding of Linux.
