Linux Well, it's been a while since we've opened this particular jar (box is not historically accurate) owned by Pandora. Desktop Linux... Yes, that ever elusive readiness of the desktop that is Linux-powered. Some story on ComputerWorld argues that the desktop Linux dream is dead, and apparently, the story is causing some stir on the web. Well, paint me pink and call me a lightbulb, but of course desktop Linux is dead. However - who gives a flying monkey? Linux is being used by more people than ever!

I don't think desktop linux is dead, but honestly I am a very happy user of PC-BSD for a desktop os. Red Hat (not fedora) used to be my desktop linux distro and i loved it. But these days Microsoft and Apple really have made for a good desktop experience. Same with KDE and Gnome (to a lesser extent with Gnome, currently).
