That was my point exactly in my previous mail. It may take a lot of time, but we can
do this.

That's what I mean. Let everyone give his/her input on what parts should be
standardized, then make a list every one can agree with, and agree to modify every
distribution to comply with that common goal. By doing this, we could all benefit of
eachothers' work while achieving a 'standard' Linux, no matter what distribution you
are running.

That should eliminate the what-is-the-best-Linux-distribution discussion once and
for all.
