Can't agree with you more. In my opinion Linux's destop is filling in so
nicely at such a rapid pace, it will soon surpase the any other desktop ever
created in terms on polish. Just look at KDE 1.1.2 from a few years back as
compared to KDE 2.1.2 from this year. The difference is amazing.
I can't understand those who oppose bringing Linux to the desktop. Even if
it gets a pretty face, there is nothing stopping them from continuing to use
the same old Linux without a D.E. It's not like the whole OS is somehow being
turned into a system that doesn't have a console like is the case (for the
most part) in the latest itterations of Windows.
