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!

Yes,the key strategy is being the default OS on the computer and try as much as not dicking the user (poulsbo graphic chipset has seriuously hurt the image of linux on netbook ),

Indeed. While on the whole Intel has been quite good about supporting Linux with the kernel, network, and graphics drivers, Poulsbo is one helluva epic fail.

Seriously Intel, please don't ever inflict crap like that on us again. kthxbye.
