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).

"Someone who uses something more finds it easier. Are you stupid or just dumb?"

That's not always true. When I first used a GUI I'd been a CLI user for nearly 10 years. Yet it took me about 15 minutes of playing to never want to touch a CLI again. When I first used Mac OS I'd been using Windows for about a year, yet almost imediately Mac OS seemed more elegant and easy to use. I've used Linux/KDE much more than NeXTSTEP and BeOS, yet I find them more intuitive and well designed.
