<That's why I've come to the conclusion that Linux zealots have bad taste in software. It seems like all that it takes to make software "great" is that it's free and it runs under Linux....>

I agree. Why arethere so few application for linux that are on par with windows. I dont mean networking software, of sys admin, but desktop user software.

The only 2 peices of real "great" software that I can find for Linux are Mozilla/NS and StarOffice 6.0 beta.

I personally want to migrate completely to Linux, but the lack of "great software" is stopping me. I'll be installing RH7.2 next week, with StarOffice 6.0 and NS6.2. The only major piece of software missing will be calendar/shedule applicatoin. But then again, that should be fixed once Oeone get their calendar incorperated into Mozilla :) Till then it will only be at best a 50% of the time OS. Here's hoping.

I do however see some good projects for Linux, and things seem to be gaining momentum. I'm soon to buy a iPAQ and will try out a Linux version with it. This is exciting for me.
