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.

I'm embarassed...

..for you.

I'm sorry, but there have been too many of these types of articles; by definition, they are written by people who have no deep understanding of the stuff, the others are too busy.

What a bunch of baloney, shame on you! I have to say this, otherwise the non-experts would think that there is content to your thoughts. I've been using SuSE for 5 years now, and not a day passes when I don't learn something new and interesting. Your glib remarks show that you don't have any idea of what it takes to produce anything really deep and well-done.

While you're at it, why don't you write articles on

"If I owned a University"
"If I owned the NYC ballet"
"If I owned NASA"

I wouldn't be so hard on you if you weren't hurting Linux and open-source with your comments.
