You Can Learn a Lot From a Linux Distro’s Philosophy
While browsing the net, I started reading the "Code of Conduct" pages for several Linux distributions. It's interesting to see exactly why a distribution was created and what drives developers to contribute to them. Here's a short list, and feel free to post comments with links to other distros to be added.
