GNU, GPL, Open Source From Free Software Magazine: "Google promises a much needed shift in the way small computers work. Problems like software updates, backups, installation, maintenance, viruses, have plagued the world for too long: a shift is way overdue. To me, however, the change about to happen shows us what many people have refused to believe for a long time: KDE and GNOME shot each other dead."

Waste of Time

Reading this article was an utter waste of time. The author just runs the anti-Linux talking points without addressing the reasoning behind why we have multiple desktops and why it is absolutely necessary. He's so off on so many levels that I feel stupider for reading this.

Chrome OS would NOT have had a full DE or app support if there was only one Linux DE. This should be obvious to anybody who understands the _point_ of ChromeOS.
