Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth: "I simply have zero interest in the crowd who wants to be different. Leet. 'Linux is supposed to be hard so it's exclusive' is just the dumbest thing that a smart person could say." He's right. Lots of interesting insights in this blog post - I may not agree with everything Ubuntu does, but at least it's doing something.

The problem with desktop Linux is due to

* Fragmentation.
* Backwards Compatibility (I mean for large programs released 10 years ago, not "I can compile the version of screen from 15 years ago".

You're just reiterating my point though.
Canonical are creating more unessential fragmentation and further breaking compatibility.

* Drivers (and don't give me the speil about how it has more drivers than Windows, most of the drivers that aren't actively worked on are of poor quality).

That's bullshit. But I expect no less from a windows fanboy.

* Lack of single vision.

Repetition. You already said fragmentation.

While the situation is better than when I said fuck it and went back to Windows in 2006.

So you've not used Linux in nearly a decade yet feel fully qualified to start a flame war. Nice one troll. But how about you actually comment on the topic (Shuttleworth and his vision of Linux) instead of constantly regurgitating your same half backed OS bigotry than you spew out whenever any topic other than Windows crops up.
