One of the reasons I like Linux

Linus rejects one size fits all Linux.

Joe Sixpack must die

I use Linux because I can make it do what I want. Admittedly, my mind doesn't work like anyone other people's. I don't like the iPod UI, I don't like the OSX or Windows UI. I don't like desktop icons, and I usually launch apps from a small cli embedded in my taskbar.

However, my computer is mine, it is personal, and I can make it do what I want.

It's sad to think that in order for Linux to be broadly accepted, it has to be less useful to me. The attitudes above give me hope that it won't happen.
