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!

a) a departure from the cryptic UNIX FHS

Like end-user cares. Nobody sees it, and
"C:\Windows\System32" does no make much sense either.


This always kills me. How is it that they new what POSIX, and ACLs even are, without understanding the "cryptic UNIX FHS"? I mean come on, really? It's not that hard. In fact when I first started learning Linux, that was the first thing the Linux Encyclopedia taught, the FHS, and I personally love it.

I am sure that you won't get it,
and call me an old farth, since I remember the
day that when you bought a printer, it came with
a programming manual.


Ha ha, I agreed with every part of your counter-post. I just had to add that I too recall the programming manuals that would come with printers! I think I still have mine. Reminds me of the 'good ol'' days when you would need to know the hayes commands to use modems and such.
