Linux For years now we have heard about Linux on the desktop and its need to make a concerted effort to illustrate its value to the end user and whatnot. The point of it all being is that if we expect Linux to become a household name, we must find away to get it into the minds of the typical user, like we have seen with Windows.

Saying anything other than MS or Microsoft will also make anything you say less relevant no matter how many star wars references are in there.

Dollar signs and the various iterations of Microsofts make you look like a scriptkiddie.

Until more companies take a page from Dell and ASUS by offering a 'choice' the only way to avoid paying microsoft is to build your own machine.

Everyone who can't will continue paying microsoft money without any kind of marketing required at all. THAT is where microsoft needs to be hit.

Once there is an OEM base Ubuntu can start making Ipod commercials and comparing how nerdy Debian is compared to the hip and cool Ubuntu...

"wow debian, you have to do more than press a button to enable desktop effects?"
