Linux It's one of those catch phrases that never really seems to die out. Wherever you look in the operating systems world, at personal blogs written in crummy English, or at high-profile quality websites, there is bound to be someone, somewhere who used it. Even I, myself, used it in articles in a far and distant past, and I'm not particularly proud of it. "Ready for the desktop" is no longer acceptable - in fact, it's on its way out.

As long as it's not ready, people will be reaching for that statement!

I keep giving Linux a try, Fedora, Ubuntu, you name it, but it's still not ready.. i'm starting to think Haiku will get there before Linux!

Well, maybe you should have read the article before commenting on it.

So it isn't ready for *your* desktop, most likely because of lack of games. It is perfectly fine for my desktop Laptop, happily residing next to my Mac these days and i couldn't imagine going back to XP or even further back to use Vista.
