Distro lineage graphic

Hello DLN’ers,
I saw this on reddit today,
Thought it was worth sharing here with you fine folk.

A family tree of sorts.

I was looking for our cousins, the BSDs so that I can show spouse “Hey look! Its your Mac OS over here”.

That’s amazing, didn’t realise that Pop OS is so young. Also that there are so many slackware babies.

Good share.

I’ll do you one better… here’s the original SVG and it’s text searchable so you can find distros with Ctrl + F

No EndeavourOS? — 0/5

These are awesome. I never knew there are so much distro’s around. Why anybody would go for a windows these days…

Big guess but they may have a waiting period of a few years to make it on the list so it reduces churn and then they can be added in post.
