    give it to your mom and your kids and ask them what they dont like about it. then you'll know why it's not popular.

    yep, linux surpased unix as a server a long time ago.
    I dont even think any are using the netware anymore.

    give it to your mom and your kids and ask them what they dont like about
    it.

    I don't think most people would even notice a difference, since pretty much everyone ONLY uses the web browser and nothing else on their computer. I think people also look at the word "free" and immediately reject it because free things are never as good as expensive stuff. Little do they know though...

    really.

    I have had many Linux Distro's installed when I used PC's back in the days. I use to get so mad at Windows and just try an alternative. Everytime I got the system working and looking all pretty then something would always screw up or just not work. I'm a Mac guy for a long time now and do run some Linux
    Distros in VMware Fusion for play really. I really love Linux and it has so much potential but in my opinion it always hits low. I use to run a PC Repair Business when I was in college just for extra money and very cheap to help people save money. I use to work at a PC shop many moons ago and seen the
    price they screw you big time. Well I use to always want to push Linux as a main OS as it was free and in my opinion you can learn alot from Linux. But I could never get the nerve to recommend it becasue of games and lots of
    favorite apps people run will not work well with Linux. Wine is great
    emulation for Windows applications but still everything in Linux is just so behind. Now im not downing Linux as I love it and use it regually in Fusion
    but I really wish they could get it together and really give OSX and Windows
    8 some realy competition. I Love YOU LINUX!! COME BACK KID!
