Debian, OpenSUSE, Arch, Gentoo and Grml Merge 117

tomhudson writes "debian, arch linux, opensuse, grml, and gentoo are merging to create a new distro: 'We are to announce the birth of the Canterbury distribution. Canterbury is a merge of the efforts of the community formerly known as Debian, Gentoo, Grml, openSUSE and Arch Linux to produce a really unified effort and be able to stand up in a combined effort against operating systems, to show off that the Free Software community is actually able to work together for a common instead of creating more diversity. Canterbury will be as technologically simple as Arch, as stable as Debian, malleable as Gentoo, have a solid Live framework as Grml, and be as open minded as openSUSE.' Arch Linux developer Pierre Schmitz explained: 'Arch Linux has always been about keeping its as simple as possible. Combining efforts into one single distribution will dramatically reduce complexity for developers, users and of course upstream . Canterbury will be the next evolutionary step of Linux distributions.' This will without a doubt put on Ubuntu."
