Presented at SCALE 13x in Los Angeles, CA on February 21, 2015
We will start with some information about the current Desktop market, the status of the Linux Desktop and its different environments. First, we will list some problems I found and discuss each of them, one-by-one, while showing points where they are related to eachother. These problems vary in nature from community problems to diversity problems while including the problem of the enterprise overriding the needs of the desktop. While some of these problems are not that important, when there are multiples of them, they are problems. The community must work together to solve these problems and make sure that the people who aren't tech-savvy can use a Linux distribution and we must ensure that they enjoy it.
