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.

Technically Feasible?

Hell yea it is. Besides modifying actual programs like gnome for ease of use, all of this could be done in less than a week. Possibly even an installer. I like your ideas...and i think you, or anyone, should attempt this to see how hard it really is. I don't see it as that hard if you base it on things we already have in the community. Still, no one is going to download it. Everyone has already paid for windows on their computers...all the technically illiterate you want are not going to get this unless you get a deal with Dell or Compaq or someone else. Linux has to prove itself somehow, we need this distro running in coffee shops, libraries, and other places to get some exposure!
