2006 - The Year of the Linux Desktop?
By rogere at 2006-03-22 19:10
Is 2006 the Year of the Linux Desktop? This banner was blazed across the front cover of a Linux magazine, so I had an opportunity to answer the question for myself. Having in the past tried to interest friends and neighbours in Linux, and having had problems with distros on their machines, surely the true test of the “Year of the Linux Desktop” would be to have a distro that installed problem free on a run-of-the-mill desktop computer.

Having tried many distros on a HP ZE4315 laptop, and having access to current distros as a subscriber to Linux magazines, I decided that with the necessary purchase of a new desktop computer to see if 2006 was going to be the year of the Linux desktop.
