Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Back in my university days, when Netscape was the latest web browser on the scene and the Pentium MMX was the power user's processor of choice, UNIX was part of my everyday life. Since graduating, my chosen desktop operating system has been Windows of some variety. This is partly because it was the most readily available consumer desktop operating system and also because it served me well for the most part." More here. In other Ubuntu news, Automatix2 for Feisty is released.

changing the guard

window isn't going to just go away too many people don't like change. That being said Linux is almost ready to go completely main stream, before 2010 there will be nothing in the os holding it back anymore.

Linux still needs help moving people to open formats which is a huge step. If my media works on all systems it doesn't hold me to a platform. Things like
jamendo.com and xvid need to become far more popular.

Show people as many gpl projects for windows as possible because more users = more developers = better software. Also it kills proprietary sofware replacing it with ad supported and service industry.

I'm sure we can all think of more things to help change the guard
