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."

Why is it good that someone wants to improve your platform leaves?

He has contributed a lot to Linux and you are saying "f--k off" ... and let other people hack on gnome when he was one of the people that created it.

You should be grateful ... not hateful.

Maybe people with your shitty attitude is why he will want to develop on Windows ... he has much more patience than I.
