Divided we fall...

Let's face it...Linux has come a long way and it has a long way to go. Bottom line: it's growing and it's getting better at a faster rate than MS is. Now that Linux has some sunshine on it, like all seeds that turn into plants, that bloom flowers, it will grow towards the light.

As a community, I am seeing way too much bickering and quibling about who's distro is better or who's GUI is better, especially about sometimes miniscule differences. Our common bond is CHOICE. We want to use what we want to use. Not have companies like MS tell us what we need to use or should I say have to use. I personally don't want GNOME to become KDE or vice versa. Let them be themselves and let us continue to choose what we want to run on our desktops.

Since I brought up MS, that's where we need to be focusing our energies. Lots of talk of "cloning" MS functions and APPS...why??? LET'S JUST FOCUS on what WE CAN MAKE BETTER THAN MS...Everyone with common sense knows we're cheaper, more stable, and more secure. Now Let's not pit GNOME VS KDE but GNOME vs WINBLOWS...Let's continue to be innovative and keep encouraging the distros to fight the good fight and keep choice alive. Just keep in mind, when people read these posts, we sometimes seem like a community divided as oppose to a community that stands together. Prove to them OpenSource is the way of the future...
