The Thinker

A comment +Aaron Seigo wrote on +Dietrich Schmitz's reshare of the original post:

It is interesting that two of the reasons stated were Gtk+ 2 maintenance and systemd dependencies. It demonstrates two things: a) how important it is to pick the horse you bet on carefully (in this case Gtk+ 2) with a good understanding of its future (which mainly lies with the developers who maintain it .. or don't) and b) the impact that Linux middleware churn has on smaller shops.

Personally, I think that if a few of these smaller distributions set aside differences and worked together, they would stand a better chance of creating something with a solid future. Diversity is great, but there's a limit to what the ecosystem can sustain.
