Linux on the desktop: RIP

Author: JT Smith

From a column at LinuxPlanet: "OK, it's official: Linux on the desktop is dead. Oh, sure, the corpse is still kicking around a little, and there's some debate about whether the patient is
officially dead. But all we're waiting for now is the official death certificate from the coroner ... But as it stands Linux on the desktop is not an entity that is usable by the average PC user when it comes
to accomplishing their daily work. This has nothing to do with the quality of the desktop environment, but
has everything to do with how PCs are actually used: end users don't use the environment, they use
applications."
