Linux With Linux on the desktop going from a slow crawl to verging on an explosion, many have toiled with the question: How do we make this happen faster? A well-known Austin-based Linux Advocate thinks he has the answer.

With Linux on the desktop going from a slow crawl to verging on an explosion ...

While it would be nice if this were true, and perhaps it is, what is the evidence, such as a few facts?

As for the rest, I found it very hard to work out what this guy's big idea is. Let's stop arguing and all pull together? Most folks think that. Boil everything down to a few uber-distros? Less of an idea, more of a fantasty. Fitting the right distro to the right customer? Perhaps, but it's all hidden in a thicket of verbiage and tales about what sounds like a rather complicated past. I'm sure it's not the guy's fault, just not very cogent journalism perhaps.

In the end, this interview left me with the feeling that there's one in every town, but if you're lucky you'll never have to meet them. I think I'd rather put my bets on Mark Shuttleworth.
