I think the article has good points, but the conclusion is BS. OSS has usability problems but so does closed-source software. Regardless of the software that runs on them, computers are notoriously difficult to use, overly complicated, difficult to troubleshoot and will always be that way until someone invents AI. Even then there will be problems. :rolleyes:

No, I am not using Gnome because of the poor GTK architecture and the lack of basic stability.
Since when?

To overcome the problem of non-standardized desktop and window systems, I propose to include KDE into the Linux Standard Base (LSB) as an addition to the integration of the Qt toolkit. Additionally, all new inventions and technologies shall be evaluated and if community census exists shall be added to the LSB.
There is no way this could happen, as commercial companies want a free toolkit.
