    Unfortunately, I don't see it coming. Recent Dell's experience with selling laptops with pre-installed Ubuntu on them failed permanently.
    Also, in 2010 BBC migrated all their workstations to Ubuntu and trained all employees on how to work in this OS. The funnies part came later when BBC surveyed their employees trying to find out how many of them switched to Ubuntu at home. Result - 2%.

    It's quite possible that Linux-based PC's will start overtaking the residential market but I frankly don't see it happening in foreseen future.

    That's because people don't want to change. Easiest way to convert people.....make them do it in school. Make them learn Linux from a young age. I used to not like Linux because I had no idea what I was doing. 2 College classes later, and Linux is easy. Personally I have never used WIndows 8, but it just finished downloading, so I'm installing it in a VM now.

    False; Ubuntu & Mint are pleasant out of the box. (As well as others, those were just the first 2 I thought of).
    Either way, Linux is almost infinitely customizable, so that argument is moot.

    Ubuntu is pleasant? :eek:
    Well, I believe it's all about personal preferences.

    Not the unity interface, that sucks balls.
    But some of themes it comes with are pretty nice.

    I've used the SUSE and Ubuntu. You don't need to use them to see how ugly they can be. The only one I remotely like is the Fedora interface.

    also before you judge linux you should try out different aspects of it before you call it all ugly and unmanageable

    The default interfaces. It doesn't take half a brain to figure out what I mean.

    so all variations of kde gnome and the xfce are all ugly.... please test them all out before you make a summary judgement about all of them

    Cin, what the fuck are you doing in Technology thread in the first place?

    1. Doctor Who. Stop rating Linux enthusiasts' posts "Dumb". You make yourself look like a Windows priest who is raging with no reason.
    2. Out of all Linux distros I (personally) acknowledge only RH, Gent, and Backtrack.

    backtrack is really only good for well backtracking

    true, not all the default environments are pleasant. but you can customize nearly everything to make it look like whatever you want. So dissing on Linux based on aesthetics doesn't make much sense.

    however, gui's are better for browsing files.

    on a smaller note, i diddnt mean for this thread to become a flame war about what flavors of linux was better, or that windows sucks. :(
