Linux Lately, we've all read a lot of articles about desktop Linux - so many that it's getting hard to tell them apart. One says "Why Linux Sucks," the next "My Success With Linux." Even Michael Robertson of joined the fun with his "Why Desktop Linux Sucks, Today." But very few people have proposed anything radical, and I believe that's what's needed to take GNU/Linux to the next level.

"Users aren't stupid, they don't need a hand holding front end"

Now that is funny.

Anyway, I only agree with half of this article. Cleaning up the file system hierarchy would be nice. And a disto that included only one or two of each app (OOo instead of KOffice for example) would be nice too. Certianly cut down on the CD's.

But I believe the author has some unrealistic goals. Such as including every library known to man to eliminate dependency problems.
