Fat or thin, it's your choice

"People say that you can choose how fat or thin you are simply by combining a proper diet with regular exercise. For some reason it doesn't work for me. No matter how many slices of pizza I cut down on or how little beer I drink it doesn't seem to make any difference to my waistline. I do exercise too. I make it a special task to walk as many times to the icebox as I can. So it seems that I have no choice and it is a genetic thing that my body is the way it is.

"With Linux however, I do have a choice. It doesn't matter what distribution I use, I can configure my Linux installation to be as fat or thin as I like. Even so called bloated distributions can be made slim and trim. I just wish my belly could be :) Not just the bloated ones. The specialist thin distributions can quite easily become just as fat as the rest of them.

"The reason for all of these different distributions is mainly because someone or a group of people wish for a Linux distribution to work in a certain manner."
