Once again on LInux. This article is full of “nostalgia” for people who followed all of this development.
At the same time the article leaves a sense of a “missed opportunity”. To clarify I reproduce here the complete text of my online comment:
In the meantime, people at Apple, using the same unix-like baseline, developed something everybody likes and everybody would like to have.
This slideshow unfortunately represents the reality of a fight between 3 chickens in the same hen house. Instead of coalescing to produce something every user would like to have, they fought each other and, at best, "followed" what was popular elsewhere.
Just my personal interpretation of course!
It is not the first time I comment on this topic. And I will continue because I really cannot understand how someone could think that Unity (from Canonical) or Gnome could be something a normal user would like to have on her own desktop (if not because it does not cost anything)
