Interesting take on Linux and UI design

I stumbled over an interesting article the other day when trying to figure out how to turn BBEdit TextFactories into droplets.

Recently I have struggled a with several characters in the Mercurial development scene. Interestingly this article about UI design and Linux mindset thinking although old, was so on the money its eerily scary. (at least with some of the characters I have encountered…) Things haven’t changed. Tellingly from the article was the quote:

The list of fantastic open source developer software is long. The list of fantastic open source GUI software is short. This is not a function of chance.
