There is no "Linux" per se. Linux is like blocks, modules that people
snap together at will. Without a known set of variables, Rev is very
likely to fail in some areas depending on which software the current
user has installed.
In a past RevUp newsletter, Bill Marriott also talks about the same thing:
The Challenges of Linux
There are literally hundreds of variants of Linux, and while the
emerging leader on the desktop is Ubuntu, the lack of standardization,
even within a single distribution, can create headaches for anyone
wanting to support the Linux platform.
I agree there are problems, we all do. But the obstacles are high.
