  9. Re: Growing disillusionment with Linux on the Desktop

    I personally don't think it's too late, as long as I can remember the Linux desktop has been playing catch up with both Mac and Win.
    Ubuntu ( Mark ) has had his shoot at it, but missed as I see it,...
  10. Re: Growing disillusionment with Linux on the Desktop

    I hear ya'
    I have been hit by the frustration 'blues' too, I think it happened when the GNOME developers decided to go for a half-baked GNOME3, Ubuntu decided to go for Unity and Mint began to work...

  15. Re: [elementary OS] A quick glimpse of elementary OS Freya

    Hi christopher9
