Linux Timeline 24 Mar 2014

This is a simple comparison between the full linux timeline versus a timeline of only surviving distros. Several forks happen every so often, but a lot of them don’t survive the crushing force of time. The original image was obtained from this URL and you can see the code used to remove the extinct lines from the SVG file and the results below. Click on the image to turn off the lines for distros that do not currently exist anymore.

May all 133 of them rest in peace. =(
