When I read things like that, I get really sad... There is no way Linux will get mainstream (in the desktop) when things like that still happen. I guess it's still time for mobile, servers and other areas. Right now, I do not recomend linux for the avarage joe Desktop user. This is not easy for me to admit it, but MacOSX does the job much better right now...
