Linux A complaint you hear quite often is that the Linux desktop environments, which mostly refers to KDE and GNOME, are trying too hard to be like Windows and Mac OS X. Now, even James Bottomley, Distinguished Engineer at Novell, Director of the Linux Foundation, and Chair of its Technical Advisory Board (put that on your business card) states in an interview that he believes the Linux desktop is too much like Windows and Mac.

... That was always intrigued by the fact that in "Star Trek" , series that depicts the pinnacle of technology of man in space, PC GUI are as spartan as they can ever be?

What do you have? Icons? Animations? Holographic interfaces? Zilch.

Multiple choice menues and submenues and that's it.

It's Unix Baby all over again ;)
