Hardware, Embedded Systems There's this hole here at OSNews, a hole left when Psystar was dealt a devastating blow by Apple's legal team. That whole saga provided a nice steady stream of news articles that's been dried up for a while. However, Psystar was not the only clone maker out there - what happened to Quo Computer, that clone maker with an actual real-world store front? They're still here, and just launched a new product.

My take on this is that Desktop Linux needs some polish and stability. Sometimes I try to give some distro an honest chance. I install it as my main OS and start using it full time. So far the best lasted about 3 days. Every time I need to do something I hit a show stopper. Then for hours at a time I try to find a solution. What I usually end up with is a hack or a pathetic workaround that kind of works. Also the UI is not very well thought out and not very consistent across applications. Everything looks patched and put together.

Desktop Linux lacks vision, it lacks a direction, it needs a leader (a person or a company) with deep pockets that knows where to take it. In fact, I believe that this is why Android, as a Linux flavor, took off.
