Linux "Lately, there has been lots of discussion on the current state of Linux as a desktop system, and articles pop up here and there, occasionally with very good ideas. However, none have surprised me more than this one. It was all very hyphothetical, but had pretty radical ideas on how the author thought the Linux directory tree should be reorganized."

i never said i was a *nix elitest. this is simply babble on your part. what gets me is people like you complaining that unix is to hard. DON'T USE it. you name 30 years of unix w/o wide spread acceptance. i'm laughing at that. first off, linux/unix has wide spread acceptance, and that fact that after 30 years it is still being used speaks volumes. little has changed in the interface with the machine, with exception of the gui's, and it's still around. if MS didn't put a new picture on there OS, simple minded people like you would get bored with it. Linux is not a game station, it's not something cute w/ little butterflys, and it's not insecure. i think it's lack of change and it strict code on security is what has gotten in through the first 30 years...
