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've had one Linux install corrupted by a patch push in the past 12 years (in no way questioning your experience, you understand). I wonder why our experiences vary so much. I guess that's why we use YMMV so much. :-)

However, I never upgrade major versions of an OS - I always clean install, which means I always use a separate partition for my data. This is true of every device I own regardless of OS, btw, including Windows.
