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."

But have you guys ever tried foobar2000 on Windows?

Yes and it's indeed a very good audio player. For Windows. It's not a patch on Amarok, Clementine or Bangarang though.

P.S. Oh, yeah, must admit - using K in almost every KDE app name is pathetic.

It's almost like that other company that uses "i" in every product name.
