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

I must disagree with those saying POSIX compatibility is useless. They say "Where did POSIX compatibility get you?" Well, it gets you a wealth of programs that will compile with virtually no changes on Linux, BSD, Solaris, and most other Unices. This is important. It means when one Unix gets an app, it can be shared with the rest.
