I find many users and critics questioning the readiness of Linux for the Desktop. For the users who are waiting on the wings to see if they should migrate to Linux, this is also a big question.
Tom Adelstein attended the Desktop Linux Consortium Conference at Boston on Nov 10 last and has posted an article at ConsultingTimes.com giving his summation of the issues. He feels that the desktop capability of Linux is grossly underrated. For those who are curious please check the article at http://consultingtimes.com/desktoplinux.html . It makes a good, informative reading even for beginners who would like to know the relative merit of the various Linux distros.
