[rumori] linux question

Inspired by some recent email I read today, I just
wondered if you all agreed that linux is basically never
going to be a popular desktop OS?

mp3.com's former CEO seems to think differently.

My feelings are mixed on this one. Do you really
think a freely developed OS will be more user friendly
than windows or the Mac OS? I think that's what it
will take to get mom and dad to make the switch.

As of right now, I can't see my parents installing
linux and configuring it for the internet. However,
I *have* seen them do that on a mac after some
brief trial and error.
