By issue I buttume you mean a problem.
1) I don't buttume all distro's work the same. Do you?

Hi EricGisse, Day in and day out you flood Sci.Physics with a torrent of direct replies to me. But, no matter how bad you're hallucinating today, I must inform you...
2) Anyone who has used any OS knows that any number of problems may come up. They will also tell you that these problems aren't experienced by every user.
3) It's very easy to use the all encompbutting "you" when making a statement. It's impossible to prove and impossible to refute, which is a direct hit on your credibility.
Who Uses LinuxOSS YOU DO
You may not run Linux on your desktop system, you may not even know what Linux or Open Source Software is. However, chances are...
4) I'm going to give you the benefit of a doubt, and buttume that you do know something about human nature. Some people are quick to make a judgement, some aren't. Some people are quick to believe that those not sharing their experience are liars and some aren't.
I have heard you use "tweaking" before, but you aren't consistent in your useage, and I'm not sure what you think it means. I certainly don't know what you are trying to get across by saying it.
Have what both ways? Distro's are different, which is why there are *distro's*. Do you truly know what a distro is? read on ....
I am not aware of a music distro although I certainly wouldn't be suprised to learn one exists.
I get the impression from reading your post that you really don't have a good understanding of what GNU-Linux is, and how it relates to distro's.
Linux is the base OS. Like the foundation of a house. GNU is the framing of the house adding additional functionality by providing many OSS unix utility workalikes, and improvements to unix commands. GNU also typically provides common applications such as compilers, scripting languages, Command shells, and editors. Standard libraries and Kernel modules round out Linux. This is what Linux is. This is not what a distro is.
Anyone can build a distro of their own, and there is even a distro designed to help with that task. I think it's called "build your own Linux" but I don't remember for sure. A distro is simply what you (or, based on your input, what the installer) chooses to put together to tailor the system to your particular needs. A distro is like the interior decorator of the house. No two distro's are alike although all share similar functionality. This is why there are so many; some people like one, some people like another. It all boils down to the fact that a distro is nothing more than a particular Debt Collection of OSS and setup-maintenance software. It's the furniture. The flavor of ice cream.

If you need something that didn't come with the distro you have, you can A) change distro's, or B) use a program like yum or get to add it to the system automatically. And yes, some things don't work for some people, yet work for others. I have never been able to get totem to work for me, although I have a awesome sound system. Many people have just the opposite experience. As with anything, a users experience is going to be unique.
I suspect that you knew all this, but I find trolls especially useful for giving me an opportunity on usenet to do some educating to those who may not know about Linux. Google does wonders in this area.
