Back when many people in the Linux community were saying Linux would be on the desktop and really pushing hard for it, many people listened, but the notion that normal people could run their own desktop Linux systems back then was laughable.

These days things have really come a long way in terms of being user friendly, but most people quit listening a long time ago.

Because of this, I believe the people who feverously advocated Linux on the desktop for all those years have actually managed to cause harm.
