    Choice is a good thing.

    How many variations of the same bloody question are you going to ask?

    > 5- When will you guys aggree on which one to use?


    Choice is a good thing.

    > 6- Standardize the way to install Drivers?


    Choice is a good thing.

    > 7- Make it "truly" plug-and-play?


    It already is, if your hardware is supported.

    > 8- Comprehensible for the MASSES?


    It is comprehensible to those willing to make the effort of actually
    reading the documentation.

    What! You mean you actually expect someone to *read* something as
    obvious as a manual or instructions or a Help file? Dreamer....

    I've learned a long time ago ... expect little from "the masses".

    1) One Linux. Thats all there is.
    2) As many as you could want.
    3) Lots. Its called improving software.
    4) With most, 1. At most 3-4..definitely not as bad as Windows. For
    example, there are at least 3 versions of XP Home, TRIPLE that if you
    include which SP is included.
    5) Why should we? Its called BEING AN INDIVIDUAL.
    6) There is.
    7) Already there.
    8) It is. There are dumbfuck distros for the clueless. Linspire being
    truly idiot proof.

    A man alone in the forest is talking to himself and no women around to
    hear him. Is he still wrong?
