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.

Bye a mac and start using Mac OS X instead and you have ease of use.

I do not understand why people even want's Linux. I do understand that people wants to get away from Windows but Linux is to me the wrong direction. The idé of open source is great but it doesn't work.

Ok a mac is not cheap and it's not the fastest computer in the world. But Apple got something that the open source community totally lacks, as I see it. The open source community don't have a CEO like Steve Jobs who has the power to pull the whole community towards his vision on how the future computing should lock like. The Open Source community simply have to many wills and most of them are just copies from other Operating Systems. So why not just get an mac and forget about dependency problems etc. etc.

And If you don't like Steve Jobs, hes time of retirement will come some day to. But admit that he's way better to the industry than Bill Gates.

By the way I have no problems at all with Steve Jobs, I like what he does.
