You don't like a dumbed down installation process or logging in as root?
And you want to know WHY we don't like it? It's a security risk, and it could even be more insecure than windows 9x. This would not leave idiots at large companies with a good impression of linux, and they would think all linux is that way.
I'd like to go over the line here for once, and say that this narrow-minded geek mentality is a display of such an incredible lack of practical judgement and of plain idiocy.
You're just anrgy because you're stupid, and we don't like you. Get a real distribution and come back after reading the manpages 10 times.
If Linux doesn't have 40% marketshare on the desktop in four years, as it should have on its technical merits - Microsoft is not going to be the one to blame.
No, Linux should have 50% marketshare now, but stupid people, greedy companies, and folks like you who don't like any accountability have kept it from happening.
Now, let me ask you a question: What is the point of having the main operating system be a expencive , closed source linux operated by a lying jerk? We'll be right back to the way things are now, only everyone's opionon of Linux will be "no-change", and the chances to get the public to change again will be much less.
