Is It Time For Desktop Linux To Focus On Niche Applications And Stop Obsessing About Flashy GUIs?
More and more of our life is going to be spent on smaller devices such as phones and so developers would be far better spending their time creating decent web applications and mobile phone applications.
If you are going to develop for the desktop operating system then you are better focusing on applications that people really need for the desktop.
Kudos to the Ubuntu developers. The convergence looks really good.
