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."

All 10 are at least as good as any other equivalent app for other platforms for the same purpose.

No they are not, not in my opinion. You see, this "good" word is highly subjective. I for one don't want my screen blasted with the vomit that is Amarok or Dolphin.

But again, that's my highly personal opinion. You sir make it sound like your opinion is the truth. Maybe that pissed people off?

Just a guess, I didn't vote...
