Linux "Recently a blog post entitled 'Why Desktop Linux is its own worst enemy' has come across my feed-radar a few times. It's yet another in the long line of 'Linux ain't ready yet' jeremiads and it doesn't really say anything new yet it got on my nerves. Why?" Ryan Cartwright at Freesoftware Magazine is on fine form with this wonderfully splenetic broadside. Read the full tirade at FSM.

This post will be marked down to -20 - because there are too many people here precious about their operating system.

People might see your post as off topic.

Grab a Mac, use Office 2008,

I would rather grab one if the prize is on par with a EEEPC. and spend the rest of the money on tech books. The joy of newly gained knowledge is far more important to me that any stylish box or software.

That is the reality out there.

Whose reality?

and the quality is great when compared to the hacked up job that is usbvc/v4L and its list of unsupported features

I'm quite happy with kradio and kdetv which make use of v4l.

Allthough i could certainly be productive with OSX. But i don't like fink. The applications you mentioned mean nothing to me. All i need is the cli and vi while i'm listening to some rock station via streamtuner or kradio.

But I'm happy for you..
