Linux We all know them. We all hate them. They are generally overdone, completely biased, or so vague they border on the edge of pointlessness (or toppled over said edge). Yes, I'm talking about those "Is Linux ready for the desktop" articles. Still, this one is different.

This article is very accurate from a developer's point of view (which I am one).

I am not going to waste my time porting my software to Linux when not only are the user's hostile to me feeding my children (charging for it) but when also the binary compatibility and library landscape is so inconsistent.
