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.

Funny people actually bring up the POSIX issue plus various other trival issues. The author has clearly stated that the goal would be similar to Gentoo or even Debian --- that being packages built specificly for that distribution. It might require some additional care, but the POSIX issue really is a none issue if all package's are provide by a sole vendor.
