Linux was touted as the desktop of the future, but it never succeeded in meeting the needs of average users.
Windows 8 is not really my cup of tea. Mac OS X Mountain Lion is not what I hoped it would be. Google’s Chrome operating system is not powerful enough for my purposes. What is a modern power user to do?
The Linux community has spent years hoping for ‘the Year of the Linux Desktop,’ and so missed the fact that it already happened in 2012.
