Hm. That's true. It'd be great if we could pull an OS revolution like Mozilla has done with browsers.

they dont need emus, but they are easy useful to use for development (does the gc hardware have any debugging stuff attached to it)

thats not what kernel hackers do, they develop the kernel that actually does the low-level stuff, not give a user friendly interface, which is what desktop environments and distro config tools do.

whats what so bad about porting linux to yet another device? these guys are just doing it for fun and if thats what they want to do they arnt going to just start helping KDE or GNOME instead because you said so.

we? i wasnt aware that you were a linux user, or are you not?

and a note, a browser is nowhere as complex to pull off as a full featured os that is bother user friendly and stable, let alone get pwople to use it, so this isnt as simple as the firefox takeover

And that's the attitude that allows Microsoft to charge $200.00 for an OS.

wtf? i dont get what you are saying. the KDE and GNOME projects have come along a long way and make linux alot easier to use. kernel hackers program on the kernel because thats what they like to do, not create a nice GUI.

Desktop linux distros are becoming easier to use with every release, its just a matter of time before they will be just as easy as windows (and in my opinion they are almost there)

Default Re: DSemu is the best emulator ever.

I thought I was pretty clear.

As long as hippy code maintainers are saying "Functionality and intuitiveness? We'll leave that for some other guy--let's go make this work on a Colecovision now!", Microsoft will be here. And they will be able to charge whatever they want.

The average computer user doesn't want to worry about IRQs, hacking a file somewhere in /usr/bin or /bin/usr or /home/lick/my/wang to get something to work, or typing mount /dev/whatever/a0b1 (or was that a1b0?) every time they want to use that peripheral device, if it's even supported.

The average computer user doesn't want to know what a kernel is--hell, they don't even want to know that there is a kernel, or that they may need to recompile it someday. They don't want to pick and choose a window manager to install, and then figure out to install or use another one when that one proves too buggy. They don't want to peruse thousands of packages to install when they have no idea that C is anything other than the third letter of the alphabet, or that Java is anything other than a caffeinated beverage.

I love it when people whom advocate *nix for home use say it's easy to use and that any computer user can pick it up, because they always forget that their opinion of "ease of use" is completely loaded due to the fact they are often computer nerds. Not that I'm not a computer nerd myself, but I have a realistic grasp of the fact that Joe User just wants his computer to turn on with little or no intervention, so he can type emails, play some Doom, or watch a movie.
