Why Desktop Linux is nowhere, part 4

Posted 01-19-2009 at 03:38 PM by AGer (Void cries or bashing time)

In Part 3 I cried over Linux soft skills. In order to finally loose any hope that improving what is mentioned in parts 2 and 3 may help Desktop Linux, let us notice that a good Windows style desktop is incompatible with Linux by design. This is the last part on Desktop Linux being nowhere, so the conclusion is included.

System configuration is done in *nix in the same manner through scripts and configuration files for 20+ years. This alone proofs that 1) script and configuration...

The Mythical Desktop Percentage Point

Posted 01-19-2009 at 03:37 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

My apologies to Fred Brooks for creating this blog entry title in the likeness of his work "The Mythical Man-Month". Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery =)

It appears to me there is a growing concern among newer users in the Linux community over "desktop penetration rates" and "adoption rates". "If we don't get past 5% desktop usage, Linux will never go anywhere!" they say.

Now, I've only heard one argument for increasing...

Linux is nowhere communicating. The media presents it like Windows, only free and better. People start to feel themselves paying customers to Linux Inc. and get frustrated immediately.

Even worse, vendors start to think the same. I do not recall what exactly I was installing, but it was funny. A "run" file did it best to install itself and failed with some complaints....

Why Desktop Linux is nowhere, part 2

In Part 1 I was frustrated by the low adoption of Linux. I have the pleasure to recall some (just selected few from very, very many) reasons for that.

Desktop Linux is nearly nowhere in terms of hardware support. For the vendor side, this is natural due to low adoption. Hardware vendors do like Linux since they understand that money saved on OS and software can be spent on hardware, but supporting Linux is not a competitive advantage and nonsupporting it is not a shame.
