There is no Year of the Linux Desktop
Author: JT Smith
Newsflash people. There is no Ã¢â¬ÅYear of the Linux DesktopÃ¢â¬Â. There will never be one. Before you start looking for sharp rocks to throw at me, let me start by saying I am a Linux user. I worked with all major distributions, roamed in Slackware land for about two years, tried to get accustomed to Red HatÃ¢â¬â¢s RPM hell in a time when Linux was a wasteland and there were only a bunch of people that were using it.
