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).

and determine if linux is ready for your desktop.

No one can tell you that without going through the steps of identifying what linux can and cannot offer (related to your hardware for instance) and what it is that you need to have a fully functional system -- one that fulfills your needs, not those of some other user that then comments that it's fine for him and so should be fine for you.
