Kelly McNeill writes "Every week or so a new company creates its own distribution of Linux. Every other week a new program is ported over to Linux. Every month a new feature is inserted into Linux. And every year a major change is incorporated that expands the OS's capabilities. One major problem is that every change that makes the OS better is happening in multiple locations independent of the rest of the companies. That's like replacing the carpet in your home a square foot at a time."
