Desktop Linux suckage: where's our Steve Jobs?
The article that prompted me to write these rants, "Why Free Software has poor usability, and how to improve it", failed to mention Linux's lack of a Steve Jobs. This is an important omission. The Linux kernel has its Steve Jobs. The question we have to ask ourselves is whether it's just a coincidence that the Linux kernel is the poster child for successful Free software.
