    Video: Why Desktop Linux Sucks

    From LinuxFoundation.org
    The name of the video: "Why Desktop Linux Sucks and What we can do about it"

    The Video

    If you dont have 40 minutes to watch it all, just skip to somewhere around 26→27 but it is all kind of interesting... I say "kind of" as it is something we all "kind of" know already but never thought about perhaps.

    This video inspired me to promise my self to donate to every program I use regularly, starting 2010.

    Video player doesn't allow seeking. Must be one of the reasons...

    I saw the "Linux Sucks" presentation. It was very enjoyable, and the speaker made a lot of great points.

    I watched the video last night and I thought it was great. The presenter was right on in a lot of the issues concerning the popularity and functionality of desktop Linux.

    Everything he said makes perfect sense, but you will have about 1000 people saying claiming blasphemy.

    Oh and the guy in the back with the white t-shirt, huge watch, and glasses for some reason made me want to punch him.

    Wow, that video was great! I doubt anything is really going to improve for the desktop. We're the users that aren't willing to throw money at problems, unlike businesses. I enjoy using Linux, but the lack of applications and system problems prevent me from using it anywhere near full time.

    That is so true.

    Some people would rather attack those who point out Linux's shortcomings than actually accept the criticism and see it as an opportunity to improve matters.
