Linux Foundation launches killer development tool

Totally useless.
This tool should never have been developped. It takes cares of the numerous differences among all linux distributions ... but there shoudln't be so many differences ! Linux now have to be standardized : get rid of all these silly archives formats (rpm, deb, tgz, ..., not even fully compatible between 2 versions of the same distribution), same configuration for everything (runlevels and so) ... For me it's the next step to make Linux really fully accessible to home-users : get rid of all these differences between each distribution.
So this "appchecker" is just a step in the wrong direction : make easier for developpers to deal with all the distributions ... but this won't take care of the problem in itself.
