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 found this news good and very positive

Finally we are going to get rid off Migue de Icaza. He loves Mono, he loves .Net, now he might switch to Windows 8.

It is good !!!

de Icaza is the Microsoft Linux Lover and always try to promote MS and close source software inside FLOSS communities. It is better to have him switch to Windows. While developers keep hacking on GNOME on their own.
