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.

re: better OS X than OS X

To create a better OS X than OS X, simply license Display PDF from Adobe and go from there. There is very little ingenious technology in OS X. Most of it is just remanufactured NeXTware bolted to some new parts from Adobe and other companies that Apple has bought.

If the Linux effort had a central brain, making something superior to OS X would happen very fast.

Instead the father of Linux is off on a mission to add DRM and other police state features to Linux. Obviously Linus has decided Fuhrer is a better title than father.
