Well, this is what I indendet to express. Besides that, I'd say that the various GNU/Linux flavours (let's put it that way ;-) have more in common than just the kernel: The GNUish userland (parts of which are used in FreeBSD, too). > Forget > the word "distributions" which seems to imply that an operating > system is defined by its kernel. I also dislike the term `distribution', I only used it for better comparability. Simon
