Discussion on: Why is Linux Not More Popular on the Desktop?

Think it's just fear of the unknown. People are comfortable using Windows or Mac and have heard how 'difficult' Linux is to use over the years so why switch.

Everyone I have switched over to Linux always says the same thing "I wish I had done this earlier"... most of these are not 'technical' users.

Today with most people doing a majority of things online Linux is a great platform, it's just not convenient for most people to switch.
