“GNOME creator Miguel de Icaza says the open source community
hasn’t gotten its act together “when it comes to understanding the
needs of end users on the desktop.” De Icaza is still a devoted
user of Linux, but says proprietary systems have advantages — such
as video and audio systems that rarely break. “Once you have a
Linux system set up, you don’t want to touch it or you might spend
some quality time on Google finding what you broke,” he says. De
Icaza is also excited about the iPad 2, and says he’ll be “first in
line” to buy one today.”
