Apple's Intel Desktop Move Threatens Linux Desktop, Longhorn
there is an interesting article on slashdot about the user experience
of linux vs OS X
the problem with linux and especiaslly linux users is they are so
technology centric that becoming user centric is not really on the
cards. the "reputational benefits" lauded over financial benefits
of free development virtually enshrine technology focus over a user focus.
this is a fundamental flaw in the FLOSS model. FLOSS is imo
nothing more then a democratisation of r&d. like all good r&d
it needs commercialising to make it palatable to end users. that
commercialising today simply doesnt exist.
