The Linux Desktop: Not Dead, Just Broken

Filed under

Faithful readers of the Linux Blog Safari column here at LinuxInsider may recall the woeful report a few weeks back that a murder had been committed -- by Apple, no less! -- and that the Linux desktop was dead.

It was a distressing report, to be sure, not least because there was no corpse in sight. Linux Girl had her funereal-black Tux cape cleaned and pressed, just in case -- but without a body, the funeral had to be postponed.

Good thing, too, because since then new reports have emerged, and they're much more encouraging!

The good news: The Linux desktop isn't dead after all. Hoorah!

The bad news: It is, however, apparently broken.
