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.

Gnome and KDE. Give me a break. I'm waiting to see what happens with the Simply GNUstep project.

http://simplygnustep.sourceforge.net/

I'd like to have a 1 CD distro. WindowMaker as the one and only desktop. Mozilla, Nedit, Gimp, Openoffice.org, XMMS, a few games and other apps. That's it. Anything else be downloadable. I don't have the time to waste trying to configure system just to get it to do simple tasks. That's the one thing I liked (and continue to like) about Be.
