Linux The true reason for this article is to point out some sensitive points and to start a discussion. Hopefully, this discussion will produce some useful outcome and if some people in the Linux community are willing to listen to them, I would already be very enthusiastic. Let's start, shall we?

ok, quick question for you all

If the linux community unites (which it won't) and linux becomes a major force in the desktop market.... how many linux developers would jump ship to bsd or maybe gnu hurd

.. I think a lot of it has to do with the challange and thinking differently...... as soon as linux becomes overly mainstream (loses it's geek appeal), linux will lose many of it's best developers to something else.

this is not to say new developers wouldn't come along, but linux as we know it would be gone.
