Well, here's the final discussion why that idea is wrong (and retarded), so people can stop writing the same article that was wrong back in 1999:

Since Xandros recently acquired Linspire, that leaves it pretty much in sole possession of that segment of the marketplace.
tux.50webs.org: In this article I'll briefly review ten of my favourite CLI (command-line interface), not necessarily the most popular or most powerful of them.
