It is time to consolidate- if Linux is to adopted by average Joe and rule the desktop!

Again, why do you believe that the goal of Linux is to rule the desktop? I could care less whether everyone uses Linux on desktop or not. It suits me on the desktop and that's what I care about.

It might sound arrogant, but I'd rather prefer Linux being as powerful and flexible as it is now and adopted by a few percents of desktop users than being dumbed-down to a one-size-fits-all form and adopted by a majority of the desktop users.
