I'm well quite frankly shocked, you must try a Modern Distribution again *since* 1994.


Did you even bother to read what I said?

BTW have you looked at the article "commercial professional applications" will move online.


What does anything mentioning "will" have to do with desktop Linux today? Also, I highly doubt that I'm going to be uploading 300+ megabyte graphic files so I can work on them in Photoshop-online any time soon.

I don't know what you think I said (I'm not sure you even know what you said), but I've been using Linux since 1994 and I am very pleased with it. I haven't used Windows at home since 1994, and I haven't used Windows professionally for about five years, since I was hired to develop software on Linux.

Having said that. Linux is not the perfect desktop. It has flaws that keep many people from using it. If you're too big a fanboy to accept that, how to you expect to ever correct the issues?
