The same can be, and was, said about Unix.  IRIX, Solaris, SunOS, AIX, 
HP-UX, OpenServer, UnixWare, what have you.  They were all Unix 
operating systems, if not actually licensed to use the Unix name.  Yet 
they were as different from each other as different Linux distributions 
can be.

Microsoft has even had this problem with Windows 3.x, Windows 9x, and NT 
/ 2k.
