  • Archlinux becomes Canterbury distribution: April' Fools?


    I was going to download an Archlinux image and found the following:

    The Canterbury Distribution

    We are pleased to announce the birth of the Canterbury distribution. Canterbury is a merge of the efforts of the community distributions formerly known as Arch Linux, Debian, Gentoo, Grml and openSUSE.

    The target is to produce a really unified effort and be able to stand up in a combined effort against proprietary operating systems, to show off that the Free Software community is actually able to work together for a common goal instead of creating more diversity.


    The Canterbury distribution will combine the best of the linux world to another game changer for the good of the users:

    * Simple as Arch - technologically simple and bleeding edge.
    * Stable as Debian - highly dependable.
    * Malleable as Gentoo - you get what you really want.
    * Live as Grml - readily usable.
    * Openminded as openSUSE - broad and welcoming for everyone.

    It seems like a big joke. Am I right?
