Where is the cool in Mac OS? Or in Windows (where is the "Wow")? Are you using
an operating system to accomplish a task through applications? Or is it more
like a gaming console that you invite friends over to brag about in the living
room? Linux just works. It also has lots of fancy eye candy, sound/ear candy
(PulseAudio) and other 'toys', but few people require them. Where is the cool
in cars? Are you trying to get to places or are you just pumping up the volume
and whistling at girls on the pavement?
