Linux as a desktop OS is a dead end

This is interesting, seems to be a common line of thinking among the BeOS crowd. Is it because of X Windows or of the kernel, itself?

The idea that you can put an interface layer above the gas refinery, and the foul-smelling problems beneath it will never percolate to the surface is just that -- an idea -- a seductive one without foundation in observed behavior.

That pretty much sums it up.
