LXer: Desktops and Linux are Not Dead


Published at LXer:

So, in an article at PCW, Robert Strohmeyer argues that the dream of desktop Linux is dead. I disagree. I strongly disagree. I don't disagree because I have some hope of Linux out-pacing Windows or Macintosh OSX. I don't disagree because there is some new distribution that is going to sweep the market. I don't disagree because of how easy to use Ubuntu, Mint, and Mandriva are. I disagree because the Linux community will never rest.

Up-repped for this article.

Robert Strohmeyer, are you for real? Back when the latest version of Ubuntu was Jaunty, you posted a video about installing Ubuntu! What happened?!

I strongly disagree with his 2cents. The linux desktop continues to evolve and is the most flexible out there. I believe it's slowly growing, having Ubuntu out there doesn't hurt. People should realize that if they want an alternative to windoze they should choose linux instead of Mac and hopefully one day it will overtake Mac for 2nd place. It doesn't have to overtake windoze to be successful.

And according to Steve Ballmer and several other sources, that's already happened.
