"Sorry, I know the difference between restarting a service and a kernel. But, as I said before and I will say it again, we are talking about a desktop here"

So you don't know what services are then. Imagine my surprise! Your belief that services run on servers and not desktop systems is just one more indication of your complete cluelessness.

You are an idiot if you think Linux from Scratch has anything to do with this discussion, and even more of an idiot for pointing out that all the $300 laptops run Windows, since that was my point. Furthermore, any idiot can register on LFS and download a book. Understanding it is quite another matter. Again, you have proved you haven't got a clue, and can't even understand exceedingly simple points of logic. Couple that with your absurd claim that Apple has a "far superior" product in terms of usability shows that you are merely some moron that downloaded LFS and didn't understand it, If you did, you would certainly not be mentioning it in this discussion.

"I say it will be the Windows computer almost all of the time, and history completely has my side."

History does not have your side. Your proposed test has never happened. The fact that a few manufacturers made a few computers with one of the worst distributions on the planet on them doesn't equate even remotely with the idea of having all users exposed to both and making an informed choice.

"If Apple can't dethrone Windows on the desktop, or even come close despite having an arguably better experience in every way (and much better than Linux)"

I accept your claim that you have no experience with Linux, along with your acknowledment that you are too stupid to figure out that more people will buy a $300.00 laptop than will buy a $1000.00 laptop, regardless of OS.

"At my local library they have folded the Sci-Fi section in with the general fiction books. Which means I can no longer browse just Sci-Fi books. I am not sure why they did it, but what irks me a bit is that the Mystery section still remain separate."

That sounds mysterious. You should investigate.

"He's not entirely wrong."

Actually, he is entirely wrong. If KDE made a linux distribution it would merely be yet another distribution that has KDE as a WM. There are already hundreds of distributions that use it. It adds no value for them to create yet another one, and that's why they don't waste their time and effort. Claiming that KDE or Gnome releasing a distrubtion would "cut out middlemen" is just a phenomenally clueless thing to say, and is 100% wrong.

" for example the X window server needs a restart after updating it. "

Log out and log back in. The fact that you don't know the difference between restarting a service and rebooting a computer speaks volumes.

" I also know and use Linux for a decade now, so what? ;-)"

Perhaps you are not a liar and have used it for a decade, but even to this day you don't know anything about it, as you have just proved.

Why would I tell you that any year is the year of Linux on the Desktop? As I said, Linux has been far superior on the desktop for some time. Believing that this is the year of the desktop would be like believing that this is the post that will stop you from being a clueless moron. And that's fine with me. Two great things about freedom are that I'm free to use superior products even when clueless idiots refuse to get a clue, and I'm free not to associate with clueless morons like you. Plonk.

You are hilarious. You have clearly never used Linux. You read a couple of misinformed posts and believe a bunch of ridiculous misinformation. I assure you, I have been using Linux on the desktop for more than a decade, I update all the time without rebooting * ... GASP!!! ... and nothing ever breaks. Good luck with your misinformation campaign though!

*There are ways to change kernels without rebooting, but admittedly mot people do reboot in that case.

I didn't read past that phenomenally ridiculous statement other than to read the second sentence, almost accidentally. Also, .mil. Make sure you explain to the military that the vast majority of the computers they use are insecure. ROTFLMAO

"then his participation in the market would be a lot bigger than 3%"

It might help if you knew Linux wasn't a person before claiming to have a clue. You just broadcasted your ignorance to the entire population of Slashdot. Your complete inability to understand why Linux doesn't dominate the desktop market while simultaneously having a major foothold in every other market, and the fact that it literally has nothing to do with usability and everything to do with M$ malfeasance parallels your cluelessness about what Linux is and the fact that a guy named Linux isn't behind it perfectly.

Somebody already wiped the hardrive, put a Windows install that is finely tuned, and put it in the box, but maybe you can do better. But we want a level playing field as you said, so let's start with bare hardware. Don't forget that you have to pay for Windows, can't add any proprietary software unless you charge for it, and they have to cost the same. Go* ...

*Yes, you're an idiot if you haven't figured out you already lost on the "level playing field" for which you cried so loudly
