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.

Redhat, Mandrake & SuSe

The last time I checked, all these 3 distros - RedHat, Mandrake & Suse are already heading toward the same goals in many instances that the authour mentions, as are other distros.

There is a long way to go, but by developing your DistroX, you are indeed doing exactly what you proport to disagree with - YALD

I remember trying out RedHat 6.0 some time ago and I can say the difference between RedHat 6.0 and RedHat 9.0 in terms of user friendliness is remarkable.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that the current leading distros are improving on each release, bringing out another Linux Distro that doesn't borrow from current ones is impossible or at best a waste of time, so why not just contribute your ideas for the ultimate distribution to a leading distribution ?
