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.

The article was good, but the writer did not appear to have a deep knowledge of kernel implementation. That's not a big problem because the article gets you thinking, but if we are going to make a better platform, for it to really happen, than we need developers to want a new platform. We need developers who are knowledgeable enough about all kinds of modern and legacy software to be able to focus on what worked, and what didn't work. We need a generic model and a open source model that are co-operative.
