On behalf of desktop Linux users everywhere, and our first cousins, the Mac fans, thanks. You've given us the best shot we'll ever have of taking the desktop."

And until there will be any need to manually edit xorg.conf, fstab etc. to do anything else with PC than web browsing or starting OO.org then GNU/Linuxes will stay at 1% of the market.


Those days are gone. I have many Linux boxes throughout my house. I do not have to edit these files. The funny things is that you can even delete the xorg.conf file on most systems and not have a problem. It is autogenerated.

But the fun part about myths is that they are fun to tell, over and over. Wide-eyed children world-wide enjoy hearing these scary stories of editing config files, cringing under their covers as they drift of to sleep...
