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).

... I roll my eyes emphatically and sigh.

I think we need a moratorium on "why Linux [is/isn't] ready for the desktop" articles for at least a year (a whole 12 months, starting now).

By the way... Apple's accomplishment with its own GUI over Unix is great, but is still greatly filled with holes and annoyances and geekisms that don't belong in an OS with the name "Mac OS." Or any OS, really. Why does Unix have to be so Unix, too??
