Is Linux ready for the average user?
Most people ask if Linux is ready to compete with Windows. To me, that is not the correct question to ask. This implies that Linux is trying to go after the average user. The problem with the generic term of "average user" is that it means different things for different people. To a Linux user, an "average user" is probably a hacker, programmer, or system administrator. To a Mac user, the "average user" may be a musician, artist, or web designer. To someone who works or has worked on a help desk, has a very different perspective of what an "average user" is.
