A world without Linux would be...(fill in the blank)[obviously a less
good place]

Does this mean we should stop trying to improve Linux?

Logical consistency would argue you are saying yes [ie. because
something has done well, that means it escapes criticism].  I say no.

America has done well.  Can it not do better?  Perhaps you say no.  I
say yes.  I think it needs to really, for it's own sake.

Same with M$ft.  Should people just accept the way it is because it has
done well, or should they look for a superior alternative?  It depends I
guess on how you define "well". 

You like Bush.  My standards are higher.  This does not mean I don't
agree with you.  It's just that my standards are higher.
