Linux desktop lacks innovation - The INQUIRER
An interesting article which for the most part tends to support the statement that the desktop may lack innovation. However I'm not so sure about the Microsoft patents part. Is resemblence enough enough to sue? And are the desktops really that similar? Thinking about both KDE and Gnome there certainly are similarities but there are also alot of differences, somewhat more so with Gnome HIG than KDEs interface.
