I'm glad... personally I’m so fed up with (parts of) the Linux community spending huge amounts of hours reinventing desktops


So, it's generally more of an issue with third party desktops, than specifically Linux itself.

Don't be a tool. You know full well that "Linux" in this case (like almost every other case) refers to the whole distribution, plus the community surrounding it.

Uh, well.... uh... did you file a bug report? Wait, no... you're using the wrong distro! Damn, that's not it, none of the standard talking points are working, I better try some sleight-of-mind misdirection instead:

How dare you complain about something that's Free(tm)?!?!? ...unless of course you hate Freedom(tm). You don't hate Freedom(tm), do you?!?!?

What's with you modders? You mod the OP up to 11 because he's not happy with multimedia apps, and this guy down to -1 for simplifying the discussion? You ought to be responding to these posts if you feel so strongly about it instead of just clicking that button.
