Linux Linux is struggling on the desktop because it only has a small number of "great" apps, according to the Gnome co-creator. Miguel de Icaza, co-creator of the Gnome desktop, told tech journalist Tim Anderson at the recent Windows 8 Build conference "When you count how many great desktop apps there are on Linux, you can probably name 10," de Icaza said, according to a post on Anderson's IT Writing blog. "You work really hard, you can probably name 20. We've managed to p*** off developers every step of the way, breaking APIs all the time."

Sabotage is a deliberate action aimed at weakening another entity through subversion, obstruction, disruption, or destruction.

MSFT, has been sabotaging Linux by bribing developers, companies, like coral, nokia.

remember XPDE?

KDE is sabotaged, clearly. hint: nokia and microsoft deal.

mono is such sabotaging tactic for gnome.
