    No doubt, that Linux is a very good operating system......

    But no one is perfect and Linux is no exception......

    Every system has some or the other flaw and so as Linux has...

    Lets discuss some weak points and short comings of Linux so that they get rectified and Linux becomes much better and in fact the best operating system....

    All u need to do is to post just one draw back of linux or any one thing that u don't like in Linux......

    Also try to post ur idea and view point to solve that problem (not compulsory)....

    Starting off from me: What I don't like in Linux????

    Well every thing in Linux is kernel specific particularly softwares where software made for one linux kernel at times fails to install in other linux kernel. At times these dependencies become very frustrating......

    General drivers support. There are so many things that still don't work out of the box with various distros and you have to search and struggle before they work.

    However, I really cannot stop at 1 :p
    I also need standardisation among distros and ease of installtion of softwares.

    Software installation/uninstallation routines need to be reworked.I don't want the .rpms & the .debs.

    Standardization, as someone mentioned earlier, is also a must.

    Yeah man, drivers are desparately needed. My Techcom webcam & my HP scanjet 2400 are pretty much useless in Linux right now. Have to use Windows just for these two things :-(

    ^^^
    ntfs will be done in a near future lots of projects are going on in this direction.

    the main thing linux should do is provide drivers so hardware so that they may work not like my pctel modem which has no drivers on the whole world wide web:(

    1.) Packages name should be more user friendly, not like kermit, synaptic, etc (even I can't pronounce many of them :D ).
    2.) Setups should also be user friendly, like Windows just NEXT, NEXT & NEXT...

    @VG - they can make it simple but then they might violate the copyrights of other companies that use it!

    @vishal: next -> next?? ;-)
    how about wandering frame after frame, or type a simple command and get things done??

    @Venom: Copyright?? WOW :)) Does M$ have a patent for it?? WOW i'd support this patent alone!! Dont let it to others, World is much better without it!

    Many of the grievances i hear about installing applications is that most of u are confused may be by the differences in packaging etc, The only thing that you guys shud know is Where to look for information and packages.

    hmmm... I don't think there is any patent involved here. All OSs have wizards.
