Though I'm a firm believer of the underdog, I have to agree that linux cannot compete until it becomes even easier. I enjoy spending hours tweaking my computer, but still, I've never found linux easier than windows, and that is what really needs to happen. I know people who have a hard time using windows. they couldn't care less which was better (and I do believe linux is a far superior OS compared to anything made by MS) but they want the easiest, most compatible OS.

Don't get me wrong, Linux has made a lot of progress, and has a lot of momentum in the right direction, but as it stands right now, linux won't be as popular as windows. I know people who never heard of linux! its easy to forget what the average person thinks when you consider yourself an expert, you often think the average person knows more then they actually do.
