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!

Bah!

I don't even like to think about the aggregate hours of my life wasted reinstalling windows on other peoples PC's because they couldn't (a lot of times it was after they tried anyway... teehee)

That reason is a smokescreen for the truth, which is most people couldn't install ANY O.S. on ANY computer.

Hows the level of difficulty install for MacOS X on bare hardware? What? You don't know? Me neither. Move along.

Linux superior driver support makes it easier 9 times out of 10, than Windows. The only exception might be installing on a netbook with no optical media, which is no picnic for windows either.
