I seem to have given the impression that I think Linux should be more
like MS and so I should state clearly that I don't.
On the other hand, the last time I installed an MS program it asked me
where it should be installed and if I agreed with its choice - and the
last time I installed a Linux program it just went its own merry way.
As for a user interface I would love to see something entirely new. The
present systems, similar across Os's, work but are suffering from severe
'been there done that' for me.
A system that reads my mind would be nice but I suspect that's a few
years away... and, before anyone makes some crack about that probably
being a simple project considering the mind we're dealing with, perhaps
I should point out that it's generally not considered wise to provoke a
man wearing a kilt.
