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.

Well said, if OS news is to be believed there's a whole army of grannies around the world deploying linux and using the command line to build programmes from source.

The only Grandmothers I've ever known have trouble reading TeleText on an 28" television screen... I don't think they could ever use a computer.
