Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

Maybe the future is: tablet + screen + keyboard = desktop.
That for most users, I still need a powerful computer to develop and gamers too.

Yes, that is definitely more likely to happen.

Gamers ? I actually think most gamers are already stuck on gaming consoles. Or is that not the trend ?
