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 use GNU/Linux because I like knowing that every piece of software has the source code available to me. That is a unique feature that Windows and Mac OSX just don't have. As long as enough people care about that feature and it doesn't become illegal, Linux or some other free OS will still stay alive.
