few days ago that our fellow MuyComputer Article published Five problems Linux on the desktop , title I Reuse adding questions, because I have not so clear that everything is exactly as it says there. That’s not what they say per se, since the origin of this reflection is The top 5 problems with Linux , an opinion piece published in BetaNews.And
opinion piece, op-ed , the same as you are reading, which I will try to refute these assumptions?? major Linux desktop problems. Is it possible to do that? We will see.
different desktop managers lead to a fragmented experience
Well, we have discussed this so many times that tired … but turns back occasionally as the mountain goat, and indeed our last poll was that (Monday morning discovered the results).
Therefore, I will leave this section without properly answer, but throwing a couple of questions to the air: Do the users of motor vehicles fragmented experience? There are dozens of brands of cars and motorcycles, each with dozens of models and different features. Do people complain about this? What about users appliances? In short.Too
Linux package managers make learning difficult
This point, of course, is fatally raised. First and foremost, because the ordinary user should give you exactly what packaging system handles distribution, since it is obscured by the GUI , which are now the norm in targeted distributions the general public.
could discuss in this section whether or not a standard packet format, which somehow already there in the form of precompiled source even when it comes to free software, but does not talk about this author the original article. So, this “problem” only exists for intentionally seek it.Lack of software
appears endless discussions of these, in this case, is true. Many professionals would like to have in Linux natively of proprietary software category leader , and the same with the big commercial games.
As I say, this can be a real problem for many users when migrating operating system. However, not all users need this software. As for video games … Well, we all know that at this point the light at the end of tunes brighter than ever.
other than stigma also true. Although unlike the rest, is more complex to address.
think reduce the lack of support from manufacturers regarding the market share of GNU / Linux , the snake biting its tail, is to tell everything, whether it is true , no doubt, that therein lies the crux of the matter.
are increasingly manufacturers that consider the system, and the mammoth task of the developers of the Linux kernel has a system with a hardware compatibility out of the box never seen before.
be improved in this section, is not as black as he is painted whenever the user a minimum worry what you buy, before you buy it.
Linus Torvalds is deadly
“Torvalds is both a gift and a curse for the Linux community,” said in the original article, where they wonder what will happen “ when not or can continue with the project “as well as” the ability of his successor to lead a development like this. “
honestly do not know what to add. Does Linux has become a religion and Linus in their messiah? Because I was not aware. But well, we accept as a pet octopus as the Finnish illustrious life passes on, what we want to happen the later the better, for nothing, bury it with the Linux source code in a mausoleum built GitHub servers Linux and die with him.
I apologize to the reader by the previous paragraph, but before the nonsense just occurred to me the other nonsense. I could have closed the matter, as I have done before, with a couple of questions: Is Apple sank when Steve Jobs died? Or, more importantly, someone forgot that Linux is free software?
recap, “the five great problems of Linux on the desktop” have fallen in two. Or that’s at least my opinion. What is yours?
