I see it, but I don't agree with it. First, Linux is no more "pluggable" than any Unix-ish OS, including OS X (i.e. both have loadable kernel modules, file system plugins, shared libraries, etc.).

That's not the kind "pluggable" he's talking about. He's talking about how developers treat their software. On non-open source systems like MacOS X and Win32, software are usually large and monolithics do-it-alls with (almost) no dependancies or bundle all dependancies with them. That's because those operating systems don't encourage code sharing as much. Linux on the other hand highly encourages code sharing, and developers tend to use a lot of libraries. Unless you want to bundle all dependancies (a bad thing), AppFolders is not realistic.
