The subscription implies also that you can participate in the betaprogram for version 2.0 and includes the version 2.0 GA release after betatesting is done.

Linux/KDE and Linux/GNOME can't really be considered niche OSes anymore. Linux itself has gotten to a point where you can call it more or less mainstream and most distros feature KDE or GNOME as the default DE.

OS/2 was still considered a "niche OS" even when it had over 10% of the desktop market. In the eyes of the media and some of the major ISVs you just can't win.

Of course, Linux has one huge advantage -- it will likely never go away. :-)
