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 don't need to know who votted up or down but I'd sure like to find out where I can see the breakdown of chosen reason for votting a comment up or down. I've seen more than a few o few of my own votted down for no reason aperent to rational thinking humans.

In most cases, I don't care that the comment was even voted up or down, just if they down vote was because I was really that far off base or conflicted with someone's chosen world view.
