Column: Gnome brings Linux closer to being ready for desktop


Author: JT Smith

From a column at ZDNet UK: “OK, so Linux is still not ready for the desktop. But the Gnome Foundation will add to the effort to make it so, and Microsoft may even succumb to the lure of the lolly that it might make from selling applications for the platform, just as it sells software for the Mac. Even if the Office rumour proves false, the Gnome Foundation will increase pressure on Microsoft to challenge Linux’s one real advantage at the desktop: stability.”
