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."

RE[4]: Fascinating?

The question was, and I quote: "can you list 10 really good apps that DON'T run on Windows?"

W8, W8, so it turns that you, apparently some big self-professed promoter of KDE, have so narrow view as to not even be aware than KDE applications are largely available for Windows? (certainly most of those which you list)

Not very popular there, there are typically better choices, but still they very much DO run on Windows...
