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!

...was the year of Linux on all of my desktops.

Since 2007, which is when I finally got around to backing all my stuff up, repartitioning, and reinstalling my distro of choice (Zenwalk at the time), Windows has been nothing but a toy OS running occasionally in a virtual machine, mostly for nostalgia reasons and for curiosity to see how some of the programs I used to use have turned out over the years (and how Linux equivalent programs are in comparison).
