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!

I don't even know why you would want to link to a crap article like that. Linux is popular on phones now as Android ... no one will ever want to develop on a phone. That immediatly gives a use case for a Desktop. Saying the Linux desktop is dead equates to saying computers with full size keyboards are obsolete which is just insane.
