Linux feature wishlist

Nov 27, 2003

Network World Fusion tried to find out what users want from Linux. Interestingly a fair bit of references to features they'd like from BSD turns up. Also the usual We need better GUIs blah blah blah … and that sort of stuff. People, this is Unix, stop acting so helpless (something D. J. Bernstein is rumoured to have said).

I sincerely don't want to see Linux be more Windows™-like in user interface. The command-line is far more powerful, just like Microsoft is discovering now, 15 years late … as usual.
