Why Linux still needs a flagship distribution - TechRepublic

Bookmarked https://www.techrepublic.com/article/why-linux-still-needs-a-flagship-distribution/

Can't say that I'm a fan of this idea. I think a Flagship Linux would just overshadow all other distributions (see Chrome vs other web browsers, Mastodon vs other fediverse servers). Nothing is stopping OEMs and developers from picking a distro and specializing in it. That's what Dell did with the XPS laptops. They chose Ubuntu, Pine went with Manjaro for the PineBooks, System76 ships with their own PopOS. Then a non-technical user gets to choose which one they prefer, instead of being stuck to Flagship Linux.
