Is that true? - I always thought it was about choice and forking
(forking isn't always a bad thing).

I mean, as a "disto consumer", I don't go looking for a Linux distro
because I want to throw money at someone or not - I go looking based
on the community around it, how well it works, what software it comes
with, and whether it will meet my needs. Slackware vs. Ubuntu for
example - night and day for many even if it's the same underlying
