Great Linux World Map

As a visualization and Linux enthusiast I couldn't resist drawing attention to The Great Linux World Map published on the Dedoimedo blog.  All the main distros are represented with lots of Linux puns and in-jokes.

It reminded me of the maps of Online Communities Randall Munroe has published over the years on his XKCD web comic.  Just as Munroe has had to update his maps as the Internet landscape has evolved so too we can look forward to future renditions of the Linux World Map in keeping with the tectonic changes afoot.
