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.

Hey, tomcat, did you hear about the EeePC? Apparently it's doing quite well...

LMAO! Yeah, let's compare the sales statistics to those of HP, Dell, Toshiba, Sony, and others to see how it fares, market-share wise. It's the equivalent of a gnat on an elephant's butt.

As for the usual rant against Gimp and OpenOffice, it conveniently ignores the fact that, for 95% of users, these software are perfectly adequate.

First of all, where did you pull that statistic from? I'm guessing it was your behind. Second, you're talking about a class of user that doesn't use professional software such as Photoshop and Office. You could probably shovel MS Paint and WordPad at them, and they'd be perfectly happy.

Anyway, if you're not going to participate in this debate in a meaningful way (i.e. not restate your well-known anti-Linux agenda), perhaps you should simply abstain. Just a thought...

Perhaps you should be more open to opposing ideas rather than engaging in yet another Linux circle-jerk. Just a thought...
