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."

I presume you told yourself enough times that Desktop Linux is worth a damn that you eventually started to believe it. Now that you've made your crappy decision you try to shove it down other people's throats just to feel validated. Or maybe it works for you: even using Linux you can troll comment threads.

I said:

So don't give me this troll crap that Desktop Linux is ready for anything because it's either a damned lie or your wet dream.


And now you say:
Does lying make you feel good or something?


Are you for real? I'll try to keep the discussion at a level that you'll understand:

No, you!!1
