- Open Letter: DistroWatch and Nitrux — For the better part of three years, we have remained silent about your ongoing efforts to affect people’s perception of our Linux distribution continuously. We have tried our best not to engage with your evident hostility and disregard to inform your viewers and visitors about correct facts of the Linux distributions you display on your website, especially ours. However, we have decided to take a stance. It is today, the 6th of May, that we gallantly demand you to stop.
