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).

Well, the secretary or whatever wont be setting up the computer. A tech will. Linux WILL run smooth once properly set up. I think that is peoples point. That it can do all the basic things once coerced.

And of course you never "just recieve source" in Windows, because Windows doesnt come with a compiler. In fact MS charges upseen amounts of money for their development tools.

Does that tell you something?
