"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
"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."
