The Desktop Linux Paradox

[ Thanks to James Maguire for this link. ]

“For the past few years, I find I’ve been repeating
myself every six months. A new version of Ubuntu comes out. I
download it; I try it out. And in the end I’m right back on my
Windows 7 desktop where everything works anyway, and where I have
even less incentive to trade up for anything but a Mac.”

“I give them credit for trying, though. Oh, how they do try.
This time around, the big attraction is the Unity interface, which
borrows elements from both Mac and Windows and ends up with the
worst of both worlds. Outside of that…well, my
not-yet-three-years-old notebook still doesn’t suspend and resume
correctly.”
