Linux will never have a majority of desktop users since 98 percent of
computer users are just icon clickers who have no interest in technology.
If you could put a keyboard and mouse on an Etch-A-Sketch they would never
know the difference.

A nominal 100% of Linux users are technical proficient or trying to get
that way.  If some Master Overlord decreed tomorrow that everyone will
switch to Linux, the icon clickers would still click on attachments, surf
as root, and the other dumb stuff that the great unwashed realm of nimrod
users do.

I consider Windows kind of like San Francisco.  One place collects
nutcases so they don't live near normal people, and the other collects
clueless technophobes so that they don't bother folks trying to move the
technology along.

Would you like to post the percentages of zombied Windows installs next to
zombied Linux boxes?

Didn't think so.
