http://keithcu.com

There have been reports on the Linux newswires recently of dissatisfied Ubuntu users leaving for one reason or another. I’m not going to jump on that bandwagon here, but instead just point out that in any community, especially an immature one, this is bound to happen.

Linux driver problems? What driver problems?

http://www.raiden.net

For ages people have complained about how there's no drivers for certain products in Linux (or insufficient drivers), despite Linux having the largest driver database in the entire world, easily twice as large as Microsoft's largest collection.

Compile source code - and solve problems

http://www.tuxradar.com

Building software from source - that's a bit old-school, isn't it? Who wants to wrestle with the command line, hunting down dependencies and coaxing the GCC compiler into running properly?

The Reality of Using Linux Every Day

http://laptoplogic.com

"It's full of bugs. Nothing ever works. I can't get it to do what I want. It's too hard." [It] probably sounds like I'm talking about Windows, but I'm not. Those are a few of the many complaints I've heard about Linux any time it's brought up.
