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).

Who the hell wants to compile something just to install it? In windows, i just double click on a file, and the program is installed. Now how can COMPILING a freakin program just to install it be EASIER than clicking a button?

Wow, you just double-click and.. puff, it's installed?? No shit?! Dude, that's awsome!

Now let me introduce you a brand new term: binary files (oooooooh!). Ever heard of it? Yeah man, you don't have to compile those!!!! You know how awesome it that?! You just double-click... and it's there! It's freaking amazing!
