The environment is really important for developers. Tweak-ability is nice but if I'm going to spend all day tinkering with my DE/OS just to get a decent setup, then I'm not being productive at all. I tried using Linux as a desktop but gave up due to too much configuring and tweaking just to get things done.

The Linux desktop is really in need of an overhaul. Gnome is getting better every release and elementary OS is shaping up nicely.

I just hope that there will come a time when the Linux desktop just gets out of the way and looks good doing it.

Just my 2 cents.
