I had actually been been noticing recently the INadequacies of so-called "adequate" free software. Little things mostly, programs lacking certain features that their nonfree alternatives have, things of that nature, but it's really the little things much more than the big things that will draw users into the market and keep them there. It is as plain as day that merely "adequate" is by no means good enough to attract the average Joes and Janes out there en masse, we need software that is as good as or BETTER than the non-free competition. I especially liked the concerns about the games market, there really is no contest. When it comes to games, linux outright sucks, as said, due to the poor quality of sound and video. As for X... A wise man once said "XWindows is the defacto substandard". We need a replacement for decades-old shoddy software, we need to get our heads on straight and do things right, but most of all, we need to stop denying that Linux has these issues and address them head-on. Linux, and the free software community in general, have to be proactive in developing tools for the average user, rather than reactive in combating nonfree software. There's no reason a bunch of basement-nerds and 10 pounds of beard with a man attached can't develop a better product than a bunch of sissy, cubicle men and their high-paying jobs... We basement-nerds are the better programmers and we know it! Let's take back what's rightfully ours.
