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!

There are actually problems with ACLs on *nix related to umasks and inheritability. You can setup your read group and your write group but if someone in the write group copies a file to your shared folder, whether or not your read group can see/read that file is very much up in the air.
