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!

It's not applicable to normal software life states.

But I do think the Linux revolutionaries need to give it a rest for a while and accept the Linux desktop as a niche system. When Win7 laptops are going for $350 a switch to any OS is a poor value proposition.
