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.

Would fail for a simple reason

No developer would support your *incompatible* silly distro. I think this says it all -- how many things you can afford to `change radically', support them w/o any help of upstream manintainers, and not go bankrupt right away? Either you want *NIX or you want something different, but having Unix and pretending it's something different is hard (look at OS X). IOW, try it and I'll enjoy watching you failing ;-)
