Windows "On Wednesday morning, I met with Microsoft co-president Jim Allchin, the man most directly responsible for Windows Vista and Longhorn Server, the company's upcoming client and server operating system releases. Allchin is a soft-spoken, intelligent man with decades of industry experience, the last 15 years of which were spent at Microsoft. I've run into Mr. Allchin at various events throughout the years, but the last time I sat down with him for a one-on-one meeting was in August 2001, when we discussed the then-upcoming release of Windows XP. With Windows Vista on track for a late 2006 release, Allchin hit the road to meet with members of the technical press."

Yes, and linux is a unix clone.
Unix was made in the 60's, I think.
And though you may argue about being "run" by über-geeks, it wasn't so. You are not expected to be able to code a kernel simply to use linux. I do not know how, and I have been running FreeBSD for 4 years now, as a main desktop OS. I find windows uncomfortable.. especially XP.

My mum uses a FreeBSD desktop which I set up for her, she's absolutely clueless as far as computers are concerned but she can use it without much trouble.
