If Linux is so bad then why is it everywhere?

Filed under

There are 10 camps in the world, those for Linux and those against it. However, now that quantum computing is here that logic is getting fuzzy. Not to put a spintronic on things but in real life there are a lot of people who take pride in the fact that windows is king of the desktop and sneer at the very low take up of Linux in a home computing scenario.

They come up with all these "reasons" at why Linux is no good for the desktop and proudly spout off on the virtues of their windows operating system. Although, with the release of windows 8, their arguments are starting to become a little tarnished in my humble opinion.

  • Five Things in Fedora This Week: HyperKitty, Elections,, Wayland, and Python 3
    What’s HyperKitty, you may ask? It’s a cute name for something that’s not actually particularly feline (and while we hope you’ll think it’s hyper-good, it’s not hyperactive).

At Flock this August, I spoke about how much of Fedora’s vital activity is buried behind increasingly archaic Internet technologies — mailing lists and IRC (Internet Relay Chat). We’ll leave IRC for another day, but HyperKitty is part of the scheme to bring that to the visible web-based world — without taking away the things that are working.

A couple of Fedora contributors also delivered talks, I myself spoke on Fedora Workstation and problems of Linux desktop in general.
