Your weekly reminder that Linux is just a fucking kernel and what you call "Linux Desktop" never existed...
You can't define whole platforms and ecosystems and operating systems just by the kernel they are using.
Same reason why it doesn't matter a bit if android, really pixelos, is running on top of the linux kernel.
This is prompted by an article about "The linux desktop is in trouble" that echo chambers Torvald's fragmentation comments, cause of course w/e Linus says is unquestionable truth, despite half the time being ignorant comments with no-base in reality outside of his domain and expertise.
Anyhow, the article ended up calling for "standardised desktop catered to everyone" like that doesn't exists already.
The author is completely ignorant about what makes an OS and a platform.
@alatiera What annoys me most about this sort of attitude, is that there already is a 'single' desktop on #Windows & #macOS - if you're afraid of making a choice and want it made for you, fine. But what I really hate is when people want everything to be the same as they know. No, I don't want FLOSS desktops to be like the Windows desktop, or macOS, I like my choice. Thanks.
