Submission + - Torvalds rejects one-size-fits-all Linux->

Barence writes: "Linus Torvalds has rejected the argument that Linux developers should pool their resources behind a single distribution. "I think multiple distributions aren't just a good thing, I think it's something absolutely required. We have hundreds of distros, and a lot of them are really for niche markets. And you need that — simply because different markets simply have different requirements, and no single distro will take care of them all." The calls from the Linux community have been growing due to Linux's failure to show significant market share growth."
