Standardization is the key to making modern Linux a reality. It's not so much a problem today of not many programs being available for Linux. It's a problem of there being too many different versions of Linux out there. When I went to download Audacity for Linux, there were no less than 7 different versions for different distros of Linux. This is getting ridiculous. Remember that someone must have had to work on 7 different versions of one program. Often I cannot download a program because it is made for Red Hat when I use Ubuntu. I must say I can't blame people who choose not to switch.
