I quit using Linux because…

Linux

Once in a while, a prominent or not so prominent member of the Linux community makes a switch – for one reason or the other – to another operating system, usually to Mac OS X. The latest is Denis Koryavov, the former GUI Development lead for ROSA Laboratory, a Linux software solutions provider based in Russia and the publisher of ROSA Linux.

About two months ago, he quit to join another outfit that provides software solutions for the Windows platform, where his new work computer is a “MacBook Pro 15 (retina) with MacOS X 10.8 on the board.”

In a blog post, he wrote that:

To be honest, I’m happy with this. Everything just works. Unfortunately and I can say this freely now: if we will speak about usability (and not ideology) GNU/Linux distros are still not rivals for the MacOS X and Microsoft Windows on desktops and laptops.

The problem with Koryavov at ROSA

The problem with Koryavov at ROSA was that he was not passionate. Maybe not about graphics as much as about linux.
If he was, his performance at ROSA Labs would have probably been better and he would not have switched OS first chance he got.
It's better for him and for linux that he saw the light and changed jobs. Smile
