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!

Perhaps for the same reason that someone would want to use a 1970's era car. Maybe the problem is that we haven't gone far enough and that Linux is a hack job (gasp!) Maybe if someone took the time to make netcat relevant, Linux would be awesome the way that DOS was.

All I'm saying is that on a scale of 0 to DeLorean, Plan 9 ranks somewhere between Queen and AC/DC.

(Yeah, the DeLorean deserved to be in the 70's.)
