LXer: Linux urged to be more user-friendly

Published at LXer:

Linux has a long way to go to gain popularity NEW DELHI: Linux has to more user-friendly for more adoption, according to professor Deepak B Phatak of Kanwal Rekhi School of Information Technology, IIT Bombay. Delivering the inaugural keynote address at the three-day LinuxAsia 2006, Prof Phatak said that even though many sectors in the industry have adopted Linux, there is a long way to go to gain popularity. Citing an example, he said that the Government of West Bengal had recently decided to adopt Linux but majority of the people preferred to use the Windows operating system. “This is an example that Linux is less user-friendlier compared to the popularly used Windows,” he said. On the Open Source (OS) market, Prof Phatak remarked that the OS should go beyond software. He said that the huge dreams could be realized with the help of Linux Kernel.
