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.

Best feature: drag/drop install
by Michael on Tue 29th Apr 2003 22:17 UTC

One of the things I love most about the Mac is its drag+drop installations. You won't have to worry about system dependancies (as much) if you jsut make the drag+drop installer include all the libraries that the application in question needs. Mozilla can have its own private version of GTK. Rhythmbox can have its own version of gstreamer, etc.
