But from a user perspective, it's a pain the in ass to have to
download yet another package to do what raidtools do, just do it
properly. And having multiple packages doing nearly the same thing is
really confusing. Users won't know which one to pick.
Every wanker out there wants to write their own cool tool, and since
sound and graphics are both l33t, why not do both at once? The result
is that we have (to name one example) a plethora of audio mixer
Since I'm not in the "in crowd", and I just want a tool that lets me
frob the mixer, I wasted lots of time downloading many different
tools, reading the README's and compiling ones that didn't depend on
some bloated library (glibc, KDE or Gnome). Then waste more time
finding out which ones actually worked properly.
If resources were pooled, rather than all this ego stroking, we might
have something that (most importantly) works, is lightweight and is
usable for everyone, not just the users of the One True Desktop[R].
Please let's just have one set of MD utilities.
