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."

Thom Holwerda,

Could you please fix the moderation system for good and for all?

I really see no good reason to not be able to express my agreement with well thought arguments just because I had already posted some of my unfinished ones.

Should I really register "acobar_mod", just to be able to do that?

I think we both agree that is way better to have freedom to express our opinion, even if some idiot abuses the system.
