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 disagree with much of what you have said - in the sense that it's either present (eg Mandrake has very good software installation [although you have to set up urpmi first]), or the filesystem - which is actually quite logical when you think about it.

But I think that the idea of having menu items for "DVD support cannot be distributed for legal reasons; click here to download" is an excellent one. This, I would like to see...

I also think that, while comapnies must make a living, if one *had* to choose, I'd rather see Linux go the Debian route than the semi-proprietary route. Although I hope we won't have to make a choice.
