Linux After reading yet another "why Linux is not ready for the desktop" article/discussion, I decided that, as someone who uses Linux exclusively at home, its about time I wrote my response to the attitudes expressed. I have been using Linux since January 1999 (Red Hat 5.2 off of a cover disc).

"Really, what keeps me from using Linux exclusively is the same thing that prevents me from using a Mac more frequently - namely, the applications I need are available only on Windows."

I've always been curious about this. Asside from many games, what productivity applications are specifically missing from OS X that you need that aren;t already available or are available with the same functionality under a different title?
