Sometimes too many distros is bad

Posted by isilanes on January 2, 2007

Oh my God! (pun intended). Where are we heading?

I just read at DistroWatch that there is a GNU/Linux distro for Christians! According to DistroWatch:

Ubuntu Christian Edition is a free, open source operating system geared towards Christians. Along with the standard Ubuntu applications, Ubuntu Christian Edition includes the best available Christian software. The latest release contains GnomeSword, a top of the line Bible study program for Linux based on the Sword Project.

I might understand that people with different religious beliefs has different needs in terms of software, like the GnomeSword program, for studying the Bible. However… a whole distribution!?

This is getting silly, with people making a fork of Ubuntu “for the left-handed”, “for people with cold feet” or “for people who prefer emacs over vi”. All this is what the friggin’ package manager is for: installing the programs you like!
