Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu According to Canonical head honcho Mark Shuttleworth, Windows 7 presents the ideal opportunity for Linux to gain significant inroads into the desktop market. He said so in an interview with InternetNews. While I certainly do hope so, an eerie sense of deja vu creeps up on me: isn't this like the 923298th opportunity where Linux is supposed to make inroads into the desktop market?

Linux needs unity between desktops, one single package format, universal executables, all those litle basic things Windows and OSX have.

Maybe this is not good from a strict OSS point of view , but IMHO i think that is a necessary step in order improve the adoption process for the average user.
