I'm glad you respect my opinion. I am on your side.

That seems to be all you have (opinions). And if you're on our side, then where are your solution suggestions? We're all aware of this issue. We don't need you harping on it.

I am not some nutball like that kook actor who is driving around in his
electric car. When an SUV hits him and he becomes dust I'm sure we will all
laud him for his sacrifice.


I'm not willing to sacrifice.

This could be the worst analogy in history; how is Leo's choice of vehicle in any way germane to the point you're trying to make? And if you're not willing to sacrifice until we get desktop Linux as good or better than Windows, then what the hell are you doing on this list? I'm still waiting for the Gibson-esque cyberspace environment; does that mean I should stop using computers or complain incessantly until it arrives?

P.S. By the way, exactly what are you doing to improve the state of desktop Linux? And before you answer, I'm not currently working on any desktop-related software for Linux, either, but desktop Linux suits my needs just fine.
