What happens if a distribution gets abandoned?
I have no idea why I'm thinking like this. I mean, this is too much long term thinking, but I can't stop myself from being curious. This is why I choose mainstream distros.
Anyway, back to the question.What if a specific distribution gets abandoned and assuming that no one would take over the maintenance of repositories and the overall stuff of the distro, what would most likely happen?
What if the user had so much customization that he would never want to switch to another distribution? Is there an easy way of transferring everything from a distro to a distro?
Do we start over? Or do we do the updating of the system (our installation in our own pc) ourselves?
Lol, just curious. As I've said, my brain thinks too longterm :D
