    standardization is the key to success
    - ethernet
    - pc - wide-open implementation of various (hardware) standards
    - linux file locations
    (sorry, changing that structure won't make a better os.)
    - the look and feel of the standard menu bar
    everyone knows file = save, save as, print
    whether windows or linux

    what causes loss in standardization is the years it may take to come to a standard, or a vendor jumping the gun and creating a pseudo-standard, incompatible with anything else.

    w/o standardization, mine won't talk to yours.
    there is no basis for trade (gallon, liter, euro, dollar)
    nor communication (what language we agree to use)
    etc.

    RE: The new Linux.com
    nice layout. it's clean. forum breakup? it's ok; the major distros are listed so if one has a distro specific comment, there it goes. ===or one could only have debian, slackware and red hat, the top-level distros, so to speak. other types of threads drop into appropriate categories. colors? well, everyone loves blue, but sooo many sites are based on that fact. orange and gray is a well-known, acceptable color combo. there's a lot of top level links for me to chase, so, it's off i go... thx for listening! :lol:
