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!

So called bloggers and editorial writers don't understand what "success" is. The fact that I and and millions of others are USING a Linux distro as our desktop and a significant portion as their ONLY desktop, means success.

I wish they wouldn't equate success as meaning the death of Windows. Granted, to have the success that Linux has gotten on the desktop DOES mean a lesser dependence on Windows... but IMHO, Linux is a success on the desktop... let's move on.
