    Linux Distro "User Levels"

    | There are some distros that even go too far in trying to make a
    | distro "newbie" friendly and in the interest of making a few things super
    | easy to find or do, actually remove some of the capability or productiveness
    | overall. That isn't productive either.

    | Had KDE not removed the problem, I could have set up Xfce. Had Xfce not
    | solved the problem, I could turned to IceWM, Blackbox, Fluxbox, Afterstep or
    | any of a couple of dozen other desktops or window manager.

    | By contrast, had we been running Windows, she would have had to endure the
    | problem, because only one desktop would be available for her (or perhaps I
    | would have had to re-install). But, under GNU/Linux, I had an immediate
    | choice of workarounds – and all because free software isn’t so rigidly
    | organized that it has only one of everything. The redundancy that people love
    | to decry makes an emergency far less urgent, so I, for one, hope that no
    | distribution every tries to do much tidying.
