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.

um, "Program Files"? (as much i think it should be "Applications")

i no nothing of how *nix works, but would it not be possible to break compatability with POSIX, yet use symlinks for backwards compatability, like the oppisite of what the article suggests, and what OS X does.
