Linux You must remember the period where various electronic devices, from phones to radios, were available in transparent cases. You may have found them utterly cool. Yet the simple fact that you can't find these things on the shelves anymore (except for do-it-yourself PC cases) means the crowd doesn't find them nearly that cool. While you may not see the link yet, this is exactly why the Linux desktop will never be popular.

I know hardly anybody who uses video chat let alone MSN video chat. And there is plenty of good software for video conferencing like Ekiga that works with NetMeeting and other main protocols:

Welcome to Europe, where MSN has the biggest marketshare of the IM market. MSN on Linux is understandably miles behind the official client, and that just plain SUCKS. When the girl I met at the pub last night wants to do some advanced MSN stuff, Kopete/GAIM/aMSN just don't cut it.

As for Ekiga, get real. It is good, but besides three men and a cow, who really uses it?
