Linux We all know them. We all hate them. They are generally overdone, completely biased, or so vague they border on the edge of pointlessness (or toppled over said edge). Yes, I'm talking about those "Is Linux ready for the desktop" articles. Still, this one is different.

I don't agree. Windows is just as crappy as Linux but enjoys a huge marketing machine... Just give Linux a company that applies aggresive marketing, vendor lock-in, 10min commercials on TV and millions of dollars to bribe hardware vendors and politicians and they will succeed. The cause of Linux' failure isnt a technical one, it's a social cause. Linux is powered by Nerds, Windows and Mac are powered by businessmen.
