Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Perhaps most likely to raise some eyebrows is that Ubuntu 13.04 will let users purchase music or apps directly from the desktop Dash, without having to open a browser or a separate client." That's going to go down well.

To the average user/consumer this may seem like a convenience or cool feature, but I myself don't know anybody who uses Ubuntu for anything other than an easy Linux development box.

Ubuntu 10.04 was used in several businesses here in our City. One is a bookstore, other one is a chain of convenience store, and a musical store. I think there are others that I believe will make up 10 to 15% share of the overall businesses in the city. So therefore, Linux desktop in general is a good choice for businesses if they choose it as their business tool. However large swap of developers are using Visual Studio and MS SQL for their business software titles and worst recommending the MS SQL express for businesses or a crack version. These developers do not know how to use PostgreSQL or MySQL.
