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.

I agree with most of it.

Just a note: When they talk about Qt or Gtk instabilities, I think are referring to API rather than implementation. So, basically, it all works well, but you never know when the compatibility will brake and force you to update the applications relaying on the libraries.
Of course, it's not that dramatic. Qt4 did break the compatibility with Qt3, but with a very good reason. It became much better. ;) It's always a battle between progress and convenience.
