The Year of Linux Desktop Still Hasn't Happened
« on: December 25, 2017, 10:23:45 PM »
Linux has come a long, long way since you had to manually recompile your kernel if you added new features or did a major update. In fact, you can use it for day-to-day tasks just fine and it will probably suit your needs as good as any Chromebook or Stream PC. The fact that we haven't seen the "Year of the Linux Desktop" is a problem that many say is all about fragmentation and diverse projects. Still, I'd like to see it become a more viable option. Dell thinks it's worth putting on some PCs, and that is a good thing.

   So any who has read my blog posts probably know I am an optimist by nature. This isn’t just some kind of genetic disposition towards optimism, but also a philosophical belief that optimism breeds opportunity while pessimism breeds failure. So just because we haven’t gotten the Linux Desktop to 10% marketshare so far doesn’t mean it will not happen going forward. It just means we haven’t achieved it so far.Source: Gnome
