Nothing to see here, move along
Freshmeat mysteriously deleted my appindex entry before, so I've added it again. If you already have GnomeKiSS this is only a minor update. Have fun!
This is another article about how to (or not to) make Linux a success. All such rants are completely missing the point.
They don't stop to ask "Why do I want Linux roll-outs where I see MS Windows roll-outs?" they just decide that it is _de facto_ a good thing, and they'll do what's necessary to achieve it.
To "win" by running MS proprietary software, MS proprietary APIs, MS proprietary networking, MS proprietary modules everywhere is in fact to lose.
You'll wake up, having completed a major Linux roll-out and see Bill on TV, telling everyone what a great day it is for Microsoft "In the past, many of our customers had to pay for an OS, but now they get the OS free. That means your company has more money to buy MS Office, and we all know that's a good thing."
I'd rather, if I had to choose, see users continue to run MS Windows, but use it to run Gimp, and FreeCiv and Cygwin and so on.
These users are aware of Free Software, they know it stands for high quality software, a community of developers, compatibility and so on.
When you ask these users to switch to GNU/Linux of course they'll still want all the tools they have on Windows, but they'll be receptive to the idea that Free Software tools might do the job for them. They'll care about that, not just whether its very cheap and advertised on TV.
