RE: Dual Views
But --- if you are talking about end-user applications --- how do you get there outside of serving very small niche markets?
I would suggest small niche markets is a good place to start. When you know you can't compete in one area, shift your focus into another where you can. Get your footing first. Ultimately Linux will have to serve the same needs & wants if it ever hopes to be taken seriously as a desktop OS. In that regard it's going to have to look, feel, and perform like it's got it's act together -- more preferably do those things even better than the Windows offerings. Something which to this point Linux has not managed to do.
Linux will never capture desktop OS marketshare by being subpar in the areas that matter to desktop users.
