LXer: Two fallacies of choice

Published at LXer:

Five years later, I still think Adam Jackson’s “Linux is not about choice” might be the best thing ever posted to fedora-devel-list. Seriously. Go read it, if you haven’t already. I almost know it by heart. To paraphrase slightly, the heart of the post is this: The chain of logic from “Linux is about choice” to “ship everything and let the user choose how they want their system to work” starts with fallacy and ends with disaster.
