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!

Linux is the operating system kernel and device drivers; it's not a desktop system by itself. Desktop systems are some of the distributions like Ubuntu.

Why do we want to see Windows replaced by Linux? is it just because we hate Microsoft and what it represents?
