GNU/Linux – Fad or Favoritism picked up by Linux Today

I’ve picked up bloggin at FSM again, and my first post has been picked up by LinuxToday already. I urge you to read the article, but the basis of my thoughts are whether my current Linux distribution choices are because they are better than my previous ones (and therefore my favourites), or whether I’ve merely chosen them because they happen to popular at the moment (and are therefore just a passing fad).
