It has become a running joke. "20xx will be the year of the Linux desktop." The punchline is, of course, it will never happen. But the real jape is that there will soon be a year of the Linux desktop. It's just not going to happen the way Linux fanboi have believed it will.

The Linux desktop dream has been that companies and people will realize that the Linux desktop is simply better than Windows. Part of the hope is true. The Linux desktop is better than Windows.

Really. For starters, the Linux desktop is far more secure than Windows. I mean, sure, Linux has security problems. What doesn't? But Microsoft has a monthly security mea culpa day: Patch Tuesday.
