So what. If we go by your own figures it clearly says GNU/Linux has about
50% of market share. Does it really matter as to what distro each person is

As long as most people realize that proprietary is bad, and switch to Free
Software, we should not have any concerns as to which distro they are using.

I think if what you said was to happen in next 10 years, it'll be a great
(GREAT) achievement for Free Software!

Nice imagination, but that'd not work. Since most developers have their own
idea as to which direction the software must go. (Think rpm, deb) So it's
left to the community to decide. So if some people want to move in some
other direction, they must not be stopped. That's the whole point of Free
