For me Linux is not a choice at all period on any of my computers.

I disagree with the philosophy, the development model and a lot more.

Why oh why is it that every time something pops up about something else which is not Linux, some stupid Linux/RMS fan jumps along and says "Hey, what about Linux"...

I'm quite confident, ALL (or say 99%) of us who are interested in alternative OSes has heard of Linux. A big majority of us has tried it, and some of us has put it on the shelf and don't really care about it.


So for this and next Haiku thread, can it please be about Haiku as that is our interest, and if we wanna read about Linux future, belive me, we will find those articles and evangelists typing like madmen. For a long time these came about 1 or 2 every day on OSNews.

Get your facts right, please. I replied to agildehaus who said:

"No. Their "sails" are pretty much filled with the desire to have an open-source operating system that doesn't suck for the desktop, which Linux does and for the most part always will."

I replied:

"I don't understand this need to denigrate other OSes while creating/perpetuating another one.
I love and use Linux as my main OS, I find it perfectly usable, and still approve what the Haiku people are trying to do. The main point is IMO that we both belong to the open source family."

So who is bringing Linux into the equation now?
