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."

Gosh, I guess you never tried digiKam did you? You now, people should first do a little research before posting.

Now, I can understand that many people love Windows, this is the platform they learned how to use computers.

There are some very nice Windows applications for sure. For example, I really miss badly Autocad on linux, but that is the ONLY application I miss.

And before I forget, I cross my fingers everyday hoping that LibreOffice will not copy the new MS Office interface

Nothing against Windows or OSX, but they aren't for me.
