Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "This article fairly eloquently expounds some of the reasons why Linux's job is not to become increasingly Windows-like, nor is it Open Source's duty to merely provide free duplicates of every Windows-user's favorite program. The issue has never been anything about Elite Snob vs. Concerned Newbie. It is simply a misunderstanding of what the Linux and the Open Source world is all about. Linux is not about repeating Windows with its features and flaws. It is an opportunity to experiment with new and wonderful alternatives", says OSNews reader Bob Jamison.

Before I posted it here, I made a search on the URL and couldn't find it posted on osnews. If it was already posted by Thom, it was using a different url, so I can't track it.

It's a fairly common article, and a bit old, but definately highlights some important points and is still worth a read (or re-read).

On his blog, he says that he's recently changed his blog host. That could explain the different URL perhaps?

Anyway, I apparently missed it the first time round so thanks Eugenia! Great article.
