10 Reasons why GUI Doesn’t Matter

,----[ Quote ]
| A lot have been said about user experience, themes and looks of your OS in
| general. Some claim that OSX has the best GUI around. Aero fans drool over
| its fancy windows flip thingy. But does it really all matter? Take a look and
| decide yourself.

Many pictures.

The visual layer (compatible with skinning) is thin and shallow. It's what's
underneath that ultimately counts.

Compiz is the Most Important Thing to Ever Happen to Linux.

| If the Linux community wants to wipe Windows and Mac out of the OS business
| all they need to do in focus all of their collective efforts on developing
| Compiz. With the combine intelligence of hundreds of thousands of nerds we

Compiz is Cool – and Why That Matters

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the most vexed questions within the open source world is when, if
| ever, GNU/Linux will take off on the desktop. Strangely, this isn't really
| about capabilities: as someone who has Ubuntu running on both of his main
| systems, I can attest to the fact that GNU/Linux is not just usable, it's a
| downright pleasure to use. In fact, I constantly marvel at how transparent
| open source has become: most of the time I'm simply not aware that I'm using
| it – it just works.
|
| This raises the interesting question: so what's missing? What more does open
| source need to do in order to capture the attention of the general user? I
| think the answer can be found on this YouTube video.
