  • More testing for the root distros

    Most Linux distributions are based off Debian, Slackware or RedHat or some branch of any of these. I think more of the articles on the site should be focused around these "root" distributions and a few popular branches. Very often tests are based off Ubuntu, and while Ubuntu (for some reason) has a large user base it feel a bit unfair to that the other distros and especially the root or mother distros if you like are not more prominent....

    With my testing I generally target the distribution(s) with the greatest user-base and thus the maximum potential interest to users, so Ubuntu and Fedora is what gets tested most often.

      As an aspiring Debian fanatic (not there quite yet, but working on it) I would argue that since Ubuntu is based off Debian (and since many Ubuntu devs contribute to Debian) it makes sense to focus the tests that are not Ubuntu specific on Debian instead... anyway not really a very important issue for me, but I wanted to get it off my chest! Keep up the good work
