Re: Linux on the desktop
I tried Linux on the desktop for a while.
Then I discovered all the things which almost worked, but not quite.
Like printing photos.
Syncing music to an iPod.
Editing Word documents.
and on and on and on.
Got a Mac and things 'just worked'. All the good thing about Linux (Unix under the hood with all the usual command line tools), without the shitty UI and half-broken tools that never quite do what you want.
Linux is great for servers. Use it all the time for that. With a command line interface.
Linux as a desktop is always almost there, but not quite ready yet.
