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 like Quanta Plus. I've used it for many years. It has many strengths. It is no longer part of the KDE family. There is no replacement. Effectively its legs have been cut off from under it, and it's been taken to the graveyard to starve to death. Not cool.

I'm happy to be wrong. It seems Quanta Plus is being resurrected in the form of a plugin for kdevelop:

This is excellent news. I hope it works out.
