If memory serves me best

I would think some have more functions and commands than other
also I do belive that they have been introduced with time... and as for linux if x is better than y for some reason, as long as they have different feature x won't be thrown away because y has come they will still consider many of us still love x both will still be shipped with the distro and you the installer will have the choice either to install it or not... which wouldn't be the case with an upgrade ..
