Linux Recently in a post on my blog I argued that, despite many claims to the contrary, GNU/Linux is almost ready for the desktop. In particular, I argued that GNU/Linux is already a very good and easy desktop if people just take the time to learn its very basic differences with Windows before actually using it.

I am tired of people saying Linux is "almost" ready for the desktop. Linux has been a usable desktop for a long time. Back a few years my girlfriend was pretty much computer illiterate, and yet it did not take me much time at all to get her up and running with no problems on a SuSe 6.1 machine.

I agree with you completly, it all comes down to familiarity, not usability or how "slick" it looks.
