One by one, the penguins are stealing my sanity.

Hello all... Sorry for the missed day with no post. My goal is a post per day. Hopefully, today will rectify that. (And yes, I realize that I've recycled this entry's title from an earlier blog. Or is nobody paying attention?)

Over on Slashdot, there is a discussion about the sabatoge of Linux on the desktop. Now, I'm probably a bigger proponent of Linux than many, but as a computer geek, I know there's the issue of the right tool for the job. I think that in the task of a general user's desktop, Windows is probably where it's at. Anything else, and you'll get the "But why doesn't XXXX work on it? It works on my friend's PC." The only way around this is to make their first experiences, and their day-to-day experiences, be with something else. Unfortunately, Windows still rules the business desktop, so that's not likely to happen. And that's fine with me, because I'm a Linux advocate, not a Linux zealot.
