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 the newbie computer user looks at this and says, "GUI? CLI? RPM? DB? RH? ftp? command line? compiling? JS? sys/net? DLLs? What the hell is he talking about?" And then if he is an intelligent new computer user with patience, he looks through again, "RH, ok, think I figured that one out, it is Red Hat. But that's all I can figure out from it." So many anacronyms in there that one can get lost in them easily if he has less than a clue.
Oh, and I do believe it is Asimov. And that is more the mark of a geek than any linux know-how in my opinion.
