Sometimes I think Linux users are their own worst enemies. What Ubuntu (and its derivatives) has done is made the Linux desktop as easy as boot CD, next, next, next, reboot. Sorry if that pisses you off, but if I wanted to spend my days on the command line, I would still run DOS.
My children still have no idea what runs their computer. They save as .docx so their teachers can read their homework without a problem. That the spyware that comes with some of their game sites doesn't like the OS in their computer is just a bonus blessing.
