I recently asserted on my blog that a distinction was moot. The sentence:
Granted, the distinction between system and package manager maintained assets is moot on Linux distros, as they're all updated from apt-get, yum and so on.
People have commented on my allegedly incorrect use of moot, claiming that the distinction itself can't be moot, only the point of the distinction.
I've already read about moot points. Should I rephrase the sentence using moot point? In the contemporary context, would I be correct when describing things as moot?
