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.

As easy as Windows ?

In your article - I read, make the installer as easy as Windows.
- Nobody I know that has on off-the-shelf copy of windows and that has 1 periperal/component not included on the stock CD can install it. And they have comented that it is longer and more complicated to install than whatever Linux distro I have proposed: mostly Corel 1.2 and lately, Xandros. Corel was actually king of the newbie_install :
5 screens & approx 7 clicks and 1 reboot later is was all done.
Let's reverse the scenario and have Windows do as well....
