The concept and theory of Linux was really good. The only problem is that most people who develop the code and software for Linux shouldn't even be allowed anywhere near a computer in the first place, because they seriously need to understand the concept of user-friendliness. In a world where technology changes rapidly, the cumbersome command-line terminal has now been replaced by a mouse cursor, and tasks that once took hours of typing can be completed with a few clicks of a mouse. Unfortunately, many Linux programmers refuse to accept that technological change can be good for their favorite operating system, and as a result, they scratch their heads and wonder why Linux is not being adopted by the "stupid masses" as quickly as they predicted.
To all Linux fanboys, the reason why Tux is taking very long to become a household name is not because the users are stupid or "n00b"s or "trolls". It is because there is some major flaw in the Linux design which keeps the end user from picking it up, trying it out, and maybe even offering feedback on how to improve it. After all, software is only as good as the one who programs it.

An operating system that should only be used for hardcore developing and 24/7 services. Gaming on Linux is almost impossible. Linux is everything but user-freindly.
So many Linux-elitists think they are better than everyone else.

n. An OS that is awesome for geeky programmers. For everyone else, it is much too difficult to install and use.
Linux will always have a small installed base on desktop computers, because the only way it can become mainstream is if it loses the difficulty of installation and use. The only way to attain that is to completely change what linux is.

Many people think it is an OS, but it is actually just a clever trap devised to capture and mark elitist morons so normal people can avoid them.
"Nice to meet you, what operating system do you use?"

"Linux because it is so stable and it runs everything better then eveyrthing else and it is perfect and better then any other OS"

"Goodbye!"

If you want to see how crappy Linux is without having to waste your time installing it on your computer, try out a live CD of Knoppix or SLAX (Slackware-Live).
I agree with the few people who were brave enough to post the truth about Linux. It is just the same poorly-coded turd that the geeks tricked us into trying out a few years ago, only this time with more colorful GUIs.

A operating system whose only superiorities versus Windows is its server stability and ability to be altered by its code, because its open-source software. Windows cannot be altered like this because learning C++, then butchering Window's code is illegal.

Windows is used by a common computer user who has no interest in running gaming/website servers or being a programmer. Windows is much more compatible, almost everything except Unix/Mac software. Windows is also made by capitalist pigs governed by a monsterous irresponsible behemoth called Bill Gates who failed to completely debug its software in the first place and only does something when somebody personally mails him a death threat.
The linuxers program, and the Windowers use. Enough said. Maccers, I don't know, don't care, only Space Command units use them for their ability to do math better than our common shit PCs.

A kernel made by Linux Torvalds; a product of consumption of an hilarious amount alcohol.
<oppstoppersnopp>Linux is the best
<femilh>STFU, or I'll rape your mother with a Hitlerjügend-knife
<oppstoppersnopp>But Linux is the best!
<femilh>No, BSD is the best.
<oppstoppersnopp>No
<femilh>Yes
<oppstoppersnopp>No
<femilh>Yes
<oppstoppersnopp>OK ALREADY! BSD RULES THE FSCKING EARTH!
