"Up until recently, the Linux operating system
conceived mostly by Linus Torvalds, has spent most of its life on
servers and other backend machines. Users love the stability of the
operating system but the migration to consumer desktops has been
lethargic at best.
'In the seven years we have run Linux on our desktops it has
evolved from a geek-only environment to something a non-techie
could be comfortable using,' says Phil Hughes, Publisher, Linux
Journal. 'It's time for a place on the web to help that non-techie
get up and running with Linux and DesktopLinux.com looks like it
will be that place.'"
