Nine Steps to Optimal GNU/Linux Desktop Setup

,----[ Quote ]
| All these circumstances require extra work. But the good news is that
| GNU/Linux is versatile enough to handle a much wider variety of needs than
| most operating systems. Whatever your requirements, GNU/Linux should be able
| to accommodate them, if only you will take the time to experiment and
| configure. In return, you'll be rewarded with a system that is secure and
| organized the way you prefer.

| So here’s a frightening suggestion: look closely at the all Microsoft
| enterprise today and try to honestly answer two simple questions:
|
| 1. what’s all this stuff do that we couldn’t do in the 1980s? and,
| 2. what are the odds that the other path to user empowerment and
| distributed computing not only would have been better, but will eventually
| ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
| re-emerge, crush the machines, and declare thirty or forty years of the PC
| ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
| as much a multi-trillion dollar disaster as the failure to exploit nuclear
| power?

Windows desktops have 'embraced' it (or been forcibly embraced).
