Linux With Linux on the desktop going from a slow crawl to verging on an explosion, many have toiled with the question: How do we make this happen faster? A well-known Austin-based Linux Advocate thinks he has the answer.

Wow stop porting to Windows...

I dare you go ahead... Oh wait it will not work...

Let me give an example. Apache. In the early days the Apache team for years ignored Windows. They said that they were a Unix server only. That raised quite a bit of flack and the result is that Windows is now a completely supported platform.

The reality and I think people are missing it. If people don't want Linux on the desktop it is because Linux on the desktop is not working. Or the people doing Linux on the desktop are not doing something that people want.

Think hard about this. Windows = cost, Linux = free. Yet here we are Windows = market leader, OSX = catching up quickly... Linux? toil toil toil...

On the server different situation completely...
