Linux You must remember the period where various electronic devices, from phones to radios, were available in transparent cases. You may have found them utterly cool. Yet the simple fact that you can't find these things on the shelves anymore (except for do-it-yourself PC cases) means the crowd doesn't find them nearly that cool. While you may not see the link yet, this is exactly why the Linux desktop will never be popular.

Yet another articles on OSNews without any real value.
Sure some points in there are valid, but have little to do with "Desktop" Linux.

Sure tech users are different from your avreage Joe, but claming that is why they use windows is outright dumb.

One thing I would like to know is when, if ever, did the author use linux on the desktop? After reading the article I doubt he ever did.

Please, please, please, don't post news articles just for the sake of posting news articles, it brings the value of the whole site down.
