Rescued? What exactly does desktop Linux need rescuing from? Usage is *increasing*, isn't it?

It's not exactly difficult for desktop Linux numbers to increase given that they started from zero only 10 years (or so) ago...!

Seriously though, desktop Linux needs rescuing from itself. It'd have far more chance of succeeding if it could focus on one desktop manager. All the KDE/Gnome/*insert others* managers don't help. Linux needs to focus on one desktop manager that all applications happily run under.
