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 Mark does a good job. Really it's a matter of personal chioce; but Linux is still messy. Sure you have to do reboots with MS and it's too closed but that's the sacrafice with basic products that work most of the time. It's good to have Linux as an undercurrent to the market as it's pushing software to be open source.
