I tend to agree.
Over the years I've used just about every major Linux distro out there,
including RedHat, Fedora, Suse, Slackware and Ubuntu. Which distro I used
at any point depended on where each distro was at at the time, what type
of system I was building, who was going to use it, etc, etc.
I now find 'distro wars' utterly pointless. No single distro can possibly
be all things to all people, nor should it even try. Linux is Linux,
whatever the flavour, and I find global understandings about Linux more
useful than any one distro's take on how Linux can/should be set up.
Something like DeMuDi might be useful to a Linux newbie, but personally I
don't have a need for it. I'm more interested in acquiring enough
understanding to make audio software run on any Linux system.
My 2 cents.
