Linux After reading a discussion on DistroWatch asking if users were happy with their current distribution, I noticed a common thread of those who have had similar experiences as myself with juggling various Linux distributions. Like myself, they feel many Linux distributions are great, but no one quite feels like home. None of them quite fit the bill and they may even begin to think that every OS sucks.

speaking for myself, obviously. i couldn't care less if Linux became "the desktop OS". Its right for me and so I couldn't ask for anything more (except, perhaps, ready drivers from every hardware vendor). Linux isn't for everyone and never will be. Nor should it be, IMO. It's a tool. Nothing more. Windows is a tool and nothing more.

I think what draws we Linux users to this particular tool is that it readily becomes whatever we need. It doesn't force any particular vision on us. It is, in a word, versatile. Therefore the only thing that can "ruin [my] interest" in this tool is if this versatility is somehow removed from the overall Linux/*BSD concept.
