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.

Market reality

The market doesnt care what is boxed and shipped. In the end is what the public perfers. Do they like Linux or not. i think it is achievable if you look at Apple that uses a POSIX based system.

To me it's if people prefer DOS or UNIX. I am still debating that myself but keep leaning toward UNIX.

Windows uses a registry which cleans things up and has all of the dev files in the main directory where Linux throws them all over in a protecetd system envirnment which I dont like much though.
