Comment What's holding back Linux adoption, to me (Score 0) 1224

To me, Linux is just completely and utterly *boring* coming from OS X. Linux's desktop effort has consisted entirely of following Windows and, more recently, Mac OS X. Show me a modern, usable, attractive Linux desktop that does something other than give me a task bar, start menu, system tray, and "My Computer" icons. I'd love to see the Linux desktop community forge ahead in new territories.

Unfortunately it seems that the FOSS development process at an extremely large scale is not very good at fostering that kind of innovation, only imitation.
