I wouldn't say that sucess or failure of linux depends on nice user apps. Anyone who gets a computer and learns to walk on some proprietary os, and then has any desire to put his computer to use doing something will quickly out grow spoon-feed style user apps and want decent construction environment. Linux currenlty rocks as a construction environment.

I agree that Linux rocks as a construction enviroment, but that is not enough to make standard people use Linux, that's why most people uses Windows or Mac OS; not for performance but for being "e-z of use".

Webinar
Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
