Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris The Linux desktop has come a long way. It's a fully usable, stable, and secure operating system that can be used quite easily by the masses.

After using the latest version for a while, I'm wondering: why?

True, I think it was the Year of the Linux Desktop (2003) that it really started to hold its own.
