In our weekly stroll through the TR forums, we've spotted a thread by gerbil veteran SlyFerret about misconceptions concerning Linux. SlyFerret has some gripes about how common folk view Linux as a single entity rather than a community effort. However, considering Vista's launch earlier today was met with some unfavorable reviews and complaints about its licensing scheme, the thread has sparked a discussion about Linux's viability as an alternative to Windows.
What about you? What have your experiences been with Linux? Do you think Linux distributions could one day be worthy Windows replacements on the desktop, and has that already happened? Or is Linux helplessly doomed because software like Office, Photoshop, and most games is and continues to be Windows-only? If you'd like to share your take on the subject, feel free to register a forum account and join the discussion.
