The problem you're having, that alot of people have with UNIX/Linux, after being a Windows user since year dot - UNIX/Linux is a completely different beast. They're different, because when designed, they had different goals in mind.

You're either a desktop or you're not - there are no shades of grey, and that's something I never thought Sun would understand. It's Sun that needs to understand what is actually required of a desktop system. Linux has been through this over the past seven years or so, and is still going through it. Most of what he's described should never happen anyway, and he should never need to do the things he needs to do, so your comments are a cop-out basically.

Bzzzt. Wrong. Novell, RedHat, and SUN have all said they're after the corporate desktop at one time or another and feel like they are a corporate desktop. Who's a person to believe, three billions that rake in tons of cash every year or an armchair critic? Hrm...
