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.

Don't like *NIX? Don't use it!

This is a word I'd like to send to all the `Oh! Great ideas! I can't write a shell pipe but want to use Linux' types.

Please stop trying to make Linux `something else'. Linux is a free UNIX-like OS (this is The Definition). It should stay so, because it's great in this respect. If you don't like *NIX, use something else, or invent another OS. Linux then perhaps won't conquer the world, which is OK, and won't be flooded by BFUs, which is really great.

Anyway, whinning is pointless. You have the power of GPL. Want to change it? Change it!
