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).

...and Linux is still not ready for the desktop. RedHat, Suse, at al - need to take a cue from what Apple has done with UNIX. They hid it from the GUI, and kept the old simplicity of applicatiion installation. Power, stability, ease of use, POSIX compliant.
