Re: Is Linux really not standard?
Define standard. Distros are just collections of software that other people have put work into for the most part. Some may use older versions for stability and others may offer the newest version of everything for people who want/need it. But it's still 99% the same and what works on one can be made to work on another. For example if something cool is done for ubuntu only less than a week later somebody will have made it work on arch. They may differ in certain areas but they are still mostly the same. I would define that as standard.
Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
