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.

Windows has a terrible file system layout. The whole thing is one big mess. POSIX would be much better.

Anyways this would never fly. Too many conflicting license issues (BSD, GPL, LGPL, proprietary stuff). It would reak of lawsuits and of course MS would take any of the good from it and resell it because of the BSD license. Thus stomping out competiton.
