Yes, and the other 50% of the Linux crowd claims that: choice is good!. Well, here it is! Look at the display servers: X, Mir and Wayland. Toolkits GTK3+, QT, Enlightenment etc. Look at the office suites. Multimedia applications. But most of all, look at the huge amount of different distro's.

If people want to 'waste' time on fragmentation then let them be. If it works really well, the project will become important. If it's not important to everyone else but you, you are free to maintain it.
