Linux Well, it's been a while since we've opened this particular jar (box is not historically accurate) owned by Pandora. Desktop Linux... Yes, that ever elusive readiness of the desktop that is Linux-powered. Some story on ComputerWorld argues that the desktop Linux dream is dead, and apparently, the story is causing some stir on the web. Well, paint me pink and call me a lightbulb, but of course desktop Linux is dead. However - who gives a flying monkey? Linux is being used by more people than ever!

1) "Desktop Linux is dead."
2) "Put anyone behind Ubuntu (or whatever), and they'll get along just fine."

To me that sound like necrophilia. Just my 2c...

Posted from a Linux desktop.

(PS: Is the Windows XP desktop dead? And was Windows Vista desktop ever alive? Do Windows Vista boxes dream of electric sheep walking by a beautiful green hill?)

Well said, if Linux desktop is dead, I have been using (99% percent of time) a dead thing for many years now.

What defines dead? Being a minority? I do not think so.
