Welcome to McBuntu's, would you like fries with that?
The other day, I was engaged in a 'bored out of our mind' discussion with another tech who was sitting at another bench doing an install just like I was at my bench. As we went through the motions, we got to talking about how Linux distros are competing for peoples attention and the lengths they will go to to do it.
Some try to dress themselves up like another OS interface, ie.. Windows, OSX, etc... Others try to 'supersize' the ISO by adding in every conceivable app in the repo. When you think of Linux overall as a restaurant, what kind of place do you think of when you do?
My associate of the moment felt fast food represented it best for him. He wanted to zip in, get a pre-planned 'combo' that would give him at least 75 to 90% of what he really wanted then go from there.
