Linux The BBC interviews Torvalds. I like this bit: "For me, Linux on the desktop is where I started, and Linux on the desktop is literally what I still use today primarily - although I obviously do have other Linux devices, including an Android phone - so I'd personally really love for it to take over in that market too. But I guess that in the meantime I can't really complain about the successes in other markets." Linux on the desktop is quite passe. Phones and servers is where it's at.

I am looking forward for the day that pundits will finally stop measuring Linux achievements and/or failures based on whatever Ubuntu is doing at the time.


Ubuntu is sold as "linux for human beings" and continually pushed as the best distro for Grammy.

Any Linux distro can be upgraded but the question is how easily can it be done by novice users and how often will it require a trip to the command line to fix something. I bet you can find that every distro has broken a working sound or wireless card in the past few years.

It's really just the nature of the beast. The solution is to buy Grammy an Android tablet and forget about the Linux desktop.
