The pain-free guide to switching Linux distros

,----[ Quote ]
| The most recent official count of Linux distros put the number at 'one hell
| of a lot'.This is good because it gives us plenty of choice, and choice
| provides freedom and freedom is good, right? Maybe it can feel as if there's
| a little too much choice at times, but there's no doubt that the huge variety
| of distributions makes Linux more interesting.

Just keep home directory in tact. It's simple, isn't it?

Stop complaint and begin to contribute the patch

| I think everyone who try patching any bug for the kernel is worth
| celebration. The kernel is one community-driven project. Because more and
| more fans take part in the kernel project, and contribute lots of patches to
| the kernel. This make the kernel more and more successful than some
| commercial productions.

Another area of fast adoption is fast booting. LinuxBIOS (2001 or 2002) is now
called Coreboot:

| Lots of press and people focus on Linux distributions when they check out
| what happens in Linux land. This and that distro come in new releases and
| they offer this and that brand new feature. This is also true of the many
| linux podcasts. They give credit to distros for new things that pop up. Â*
