    No, I've never even used it. I'm just curious about what's in store for the future of computing. As a developer, this is important to me.

    I wasn't directing it at you, Invincible. It was meant for Brian really (I think - can't remember. ).

    We'll never see Linux as the main household OS. I like Linux and use it often, but Windows is just easier to use for most people so they will not abandon it. Maybe if Linux had been what it is now ~7 years ago we could be having a different discussion.
