I've been fooling around with Linux since 1998. I use it at work on servers, it runs on single-board computers alongside FPGAs, these are areas where it works the best. But time and time again I've been disappointed with how much hype the zealots have proclaimed Linux as the second-coming and yet the reality is that it's just not as good for desktop use as something like Windows 7. Plus the community (particularly the younger side of the community who are still idealistic) is TOXIC and don't believe anything is wrong with Linux; even if presented with valid problems they'll just dismiss it as tripe. /rant
