It looks like most of those distros are niche distros derived from
something else. I would have expected to see openSUSE in there alongside
Fedora and Ubuntu - but it's quite possible the author has a problem with
the deal with Microsoft.

But it is disappointing that they neglected to mention anything about
SUSE at all. There's nothing from any other project out there like SUSE
Studio or the Open Build Service - and those truly *are* the future of
Linux - being able to do customization based on specific needs.

Ubuntu and Fedora have customization kits, but nothing that approaches
Studio and OBS (OBS, of course, being able to build packages not just for
SUSE/openSUSE, but also Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, and a bunch of
others).

I agree, SUSE Studio blew my socks off when I first saw it!
