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.

"I can't beleive that everyone is so negative about the progress that Linux has made on the desktop - it's improving at a huge rate of knotts."

i agree...the only 3 issues which still need heavy improvement imo are installation of programs, printing (drivers and integration) and (some windows-wannabe-distros are reported to have that) functional easy-to-use connection to a windows-network.
except those contructionsites, it simply needs more polishing, integration, even more graphical tools, maturity...

imo 1-2, max. 3 years from now.
