Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The criticism of Linux focuses on issues concerning use of operating systems which use the Linux kernel. The traditional directory structure, which is a heritage from Linux's Unix roots in the 1970s, has been criticized for many reasons. Hardware developers have often been reluctant to provide Linux support for their products. This has meant that a Linux user had to carefully hand pick the hardware that made up the system to ensure functionality and compatibility. The usefulness of Linux as a desktop operating system has been questioned and criticized throughout its existence, mostly with the increasing adoption of the operating system for desktop use in recent years.show more
