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.

Depends what they want it to be...

Firstly, I don't think that Apple or SUN are any better than MS...

That said...

I think that Linux should concentrate on:

a) being an OS for low end hardware
b) being an OS for "hardcore" g33ks
c) being a top class server OS

Leave the consumer end to the people with the time to do it. Leave it to Apple. Concentrate on making Linux better for the people who will value it. DO make it easier to install so that a hardcore g33k can spend his time doing cool things rather than trying to get his Winmodem to work...
