::this is why Linux isn’t more popular

15 05 2008

A company ports a three-year-old Diablo clone over to Linux, and people get so excited that a) Desktoplinux.com decides to run a story on it and b) it makes the front page of Digg.

And the community wonders why the world hasn’t rushed to embrace Linux.

This kind of thing might have something to do with the perception that Linux is not cutting edge technology…just sayin.

I don’t see how this has anything to do with the world not “embracing” linux. I’d put that down to the fact that until recently, linux often wasn’t pre-installed on any machines.

Getting the masses to change to Linux/BSD*** from their shiny new Vista/MacOS box is a tough task. What possible advantages to the uninformed would blowing their PC away and put ubuntu on it have?

It has to do with a company even bothering to port and sell a three year old game. Why?
