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 Lindows.com 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.

PS: POSIX
by Adam Scheinberg on Tue 29th Apr 2003 18:14 UTC

COmpatibility or not, you're thinking like a sheep. The only way *nix based systems will ever make any real advanced is to say "F compatibility.' Screw POSIX. We'll go it on our own. That was the whole point behind custom building packages.

We'll have to hope to attract developers based on the fact that they can make commercial products. You're not BOUND to a license.
