Linux A complaint you hear quite often is that the Linux desktop environments, which mostly refers to KDE and GNOME, are trying too hard to be like Windows and Mac OS X. Now, even James Bottomley, Distinguished Engineer at Novell, Director of the Linux Foundation, and Chair of its Technical Advisory Board (put that on your business card) states in an interview that he believes the Linux desktop is too much like Windows and Mac.

I don't think KDE or GNOME behave similar to windows at all. When I use windows I miss (this is an abridged list):

1) Virtual desktops...


Virtual desktops and virtual screens.

Right now, I'm running with eight 2560x2000 virtual screens on a 1920x1200-physical monitor.
