As it was shown in the first installment of the Understanding /proc series, the /proc filesystem can be extremely useful when it comes to finding out about the processes running on your Linux system (which might have something to do with why the kernel developers decided to name it 'proc'). But /proc is also handy when it comes to learning about the devices on your system. While it is currently being deprecated in favor of the /sys filesystem for device information, /proc can still provide some valuable insight as to what you have attached to (or inside of) your computer.

Despite the head start that KDE enjoyed, the large number of KDE users and developers, and Linus Torvalds personally endorsing KDE, GNOME has won the desktop environment battle. The final victory came with the third piece of a corporate trifecta, giving GNOME the official nod from Red Hat, Sun Microsystems, and finally Novell. The question is, will the triumph of GNOME lead to the rise or downfall of the Linux desktop?
