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).

You completly missed all my points, there have value for me.
It was your question, if you do not like the answer why ask in the first place?
Everybody is different some like Windwos, i hate it and visa versa. But if somebody claims Linux is not ready for the desktop then i think i use it for over 5 years now as my main desktop (i also use BSD, Beos, Mac and also but not as often, athene, qnx, opie, and Amiga) and find it a very fine desktop os.

I agree with you that the article sucked but the bottom line is that Linux is ready for the desktop. Keep on trying it Jsplice, beginnings are always hard..

Your tek-tips have nothing to do with..sorry!
