    Why is the term “distro” used as a shortened version for “distributor”. Shouldn’t it be “distrib” or distri”? All this “distro” talk makes me think everyone is buying their pins from an enemy weapons supplier.

    "If we call an orange an "orange," then why don't we call a banana a "yellow" or an apple a "red"? Blueberries, I understand. But will someone explain gooseberries to me?"
