"When Linux gets past Windows 95 in functionality and usability, THEN linux will be ok for desktop"

Windows 95 was not a desktop OS; It was a CRASH BOX OS rather, and I was not happy using that crappy OS. That crashability of Windows 9x led me to freeze my usage and purchase of software for windows. It felt like donating a lung for a comatose patient. I will accept a software crash but I will not accept OS (kernel+GUI) crash.

Linux now passed windows 2000 long time ago, but what It didn't pass is the great 3rd party software developed by Microsoft, Adobe, Macromedia, discreet,...and the list is so long.
Now if linux can persuade big SOFTWARE and HARDWARE parties to support linux with their products, then will will witness a world filled up with linux and linux only.
