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).

This article really had no business being posted. As seen by my comments and others it was just something to start a huge flame war. This is not "news" at all. It's someone's opinion on why they like linux...so are they going to start posting other people's editorials on why they like the OS that they use? Now that I've cooled down I can honestly say that the operators of this site need to look a little more, post news that has some relevance to fact, and not post articles that reflect any kind of bias...otherwise it will just cause another flame war which I blindly participated in today.

Oh and to Vic: Binaries? Ohhhh yeaaa.....You know I think i heard of those once back when i started using linux like 5 years ago...yea but since I was defending windows, it's cool that you mistook me for an idiot who knows no other operating system than windows. Seems you should loosen your emmotional attachment to linux a little bit...yes, people who have actually used it think that it's not good.
