Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu According to Canonical head honcho Mark Shuttleworth, Windows 7 presents the ideal opportunity for Linux to gain significant inroads into the desktop market. He said so in an interview with InternetNews. While I certainly do hope so, an eerie sense of deja vu creeps up on me: isn't this like the 923298th opportunity where Linux is supposed to make inroads into the desktop market?

Linux needs unity between desktops, one single package format, universal executables, all those litle basic things Windows and OSX have.


I fully agree. I even think that linux is some kind of a disaster for Unix world. If it wasn't for linux, BSD would take the role of linux, but with emphasized unity, central development team and a much better license.
