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 compared the default install of RH (which some people, not me, see as the standard linux) and the standard office PC (stretching apoint to includethe pro version)

The article was not flame bait, it was my personal opinions about what I see as mis-statements freqquently made about linux.

Walmart article - yes I did read it, you will remember it talked about lindows - not exactly standard linux. To me "standard" linux would have to be RH,SUSE,Mandrake, Debian or Slackware (or derivatives)

I was not saying windows=gui linux=cli, I was merely making the point about you can do "the windows way of working" in modern linux.
