The Unwitting Linux Saboteurs

Filed under

I spend time in my Google Plus private Linux Advocates community sharing ideas and trends with colleagues. Occasionally, we hit on nuggets of gold and when you least expect it, someone comments and really helps put things into perspective. Desktop Linux's own worst enemy has been the desktop Linux community.

With regret, I consider the various new desktop environments, those who enthusiastically support them and all the distributions and environments drifting towards distro/environment specific applications to be unintentional traitors to the goal of spreading Free software on the desktop.

Short sighted behaviour is sabotaging things, not the number of distros.
