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!

lkeKrull "A stable kernel API" The bugger exists.

Its called Fuse Buse and Cuse. In those you can write about 80 percent of all Linux drivers kernel and distribution neutral. Driver developers would not stay at the Linux kernel stable abis when there was a kernel mode one anyhow.

Basically where are my platform independent driver closed source makers?

Complain about lack of fast Stable Kernel API when they are at least showing signs of being willing to provide Linux with drivers.
