I'm not worried about Linux becoming a major player in the standard desktop
environment anytime soon. I'm as intrgued by it as a lot of people are, but
setting it up is not yet quite as convenient as it needs to be for the
average user. Ever have to set up XFree86 for an unsupported video card?
Sure, it CAN be done, but how many home users are that wild about hand
editing files to do it?

Like I said, it's not that I don't want to use Linux; it's just not ready to
take on the home desktop market yet--much less the business market. When it
is, I'll be happy to say goodbye to Windows.
