Linux Back in 2001, there was a company who thought they could launch a sustainable business model around a file manager. They wrote the file manager itself, and figured they could profit from offering online services delivered through the file manager. However, the company ran out of money quickly, and wen they released version 1.0 of their file manager, they had to fire everyone, only to go down a few months later. That company was Eazel, and the file manager was Nautilus. Apparently, some saw this as the demise of the Linux desktop - others didn't.

Your comment was completely unnecessary. He stated his point of view (which is what the comment section is for). You aren't being forced to read or agree with what he said.

Do you know what I'm tired of? I'm tired of the constant bickering that goes on between Gnome and KDE fanatics. I mean, my friends at work and I poke fun at each other's DE of choice. But it's all in good fun, and we all understand that in the FOSS community, people use the desktop that suites their needs best, and no amount of derision is going to change a person's mind.

I also find it interesting to look at the comment statistics in your OS News profile as well as superstoned's. His profile shows that the vast majority of his comments are voted up and for every 5 votes he casts, 4 of them are positive. Your profile shows, on the other hand, that you vote lots of comments down, and your comments are voted down often. From my point of view, you appear to be the poison in this community. If you cannot be constructive here, I suggest you find a community in which you can be.
