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 Lindows.com 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.

You could do it you know

Having only read part of the article, I may be mistaken, but, with the fact that you are proposing things done with Open Source software, you could always roll up your own distro. You would probably be breaking a lot of compatibility, and POSIX compliance, but I don't know of anything that is stopping you, or are your suggesting someone else build the distro of your dreams? The beauty of Open Source and Linux is, if you want to do something with the stuff, do it!! If you want someone else to do it for you, well, either wait until someone else makes the distro you want, or, pay someone to do it for you. I happen to like the way Linux is, and if a person can't handle it, well, there are alternatives for them, such as OS/2, or even CP/M......... ;)
