Linux Linux is struggling on the desktop because it only has a small number of "great" apps, according to the Gnome co-creator. Miguel de Icaza, co-creator of the Gnome desktop, told tech journalist Tim Anderson at the recent Windows 8 Build conference "When you count how many great desktop apps there are on Linux, you can probably name 10," de Icaza said, according to a post on Anderson's IT Writing blog. "You work really hard, you can probably name 20. We've managed to p*** off developers every step of the way, breaking APIs all the time."

I'm sorry, but since when are Linux fanboys banned from criticising Linux?
I have a lot of criticism of Linux and I point out features that can be implemented better or in a unique way. Hell I consider Win7 to be the least user friendly OS release ever. After 2 years of forced use by my employer, I still hate it and find it to be unintuitive 99% of the time. Don't get me started with Outlook 2010, I'll take web-based GMail any day of the week...
