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).

linux is not ready

Linux is ready for some people, but definitely not your avergage user who can barely install Windows software or find files on their harddrive. Windows is hard enough for them. I used to work at Best Buy as a technician and when people ask me if they need to plug in their monitor to install Windows.....makes you think twice if Linux is ready for these people.
