I don't know many folks who claim any particular distro is 'best'. Of
course, the immediate question is "best for what"? There is no one best
disto. There is not even a best distro for one person - I use three
regularly - for different needs. As for DooFuS's attacks - they are simply
ludicrous and need no further comment.

According to distrowatch.com there are about 360 active Linux distros -
not "1000+". Of course they all suck. All current computer operating
systems suck. Fortunately, Linux sucks much less than the main
alternative. None of them do the hardware justice.

By your count. Mine shows it much larger.

Absolutely. Case in point: Ford Explorer with Firestone tires - rolls over
when there is a flat. Considering that MS comes preinstalled on virtually
every new computer, the fact that Linux exists is a tribute.
