I was thinking on how to respond to another toot tonight, and it caused me to think about Linux as a competitive desktop option.

And I think that it will never make it to desktop stardom because of business. FOSS developers spend so much time reinventing the wheel because wheel XYZ doesn't it do it for them, but no time on the tools that regular users need. For example: There are so many window managers that there's a top 20 list (ubuntupit.com/best-linux-windo). Yet there is no decent PDF editor.

@redeagle i mean.... do you *really* need to edit a PDF?!

@r3pek Businesses do. They need to add stamps and markup and notes. We use a PDF editor at our business to markup construction plans for both sales and project management. I know many businesses that use it in accounting to add stamps and notes to bills and invoices.

@redeagle fair enough ;) Libreoffice Draw doesn't fit the needs?
