Although Linux is growing in popularity, one of many things that holds it back is that there are so many different versions of Linux. With Windows there’s only one version of the current product. Meaning Windows XP. Not Windows XPb, Windows XP for Texans and etc.
Computer Reseller News writes Major Linux distributors on Monday said they have agreed to support a single version of the freely exchanged open-source operating system to ensure that it’s growing popularity in corporations isn’t derailed by fragmentation.
Experts have said that fragmentation was possible as Linux platform distributors add their own layers of software on top of the operating system. As a result, corporate customers attracted to standards-based technology would be less likely to adopt Linux out of fear of becoming locked in to a single vendor’s platform.
