    With Microsoft getting so much flak over Vista's issues, you'd think Linux
    would be getting some headway in the consumer desktop arena. Unfortunately,
    the only really benefiting from Vista's bad PR is likely Apple.

    Why hasn't Linux made enough of a significant mark on desktops? It can be
    downloaded gratis, has far less security issues and has the zealous
    following of users willing to share code, discuss it and offer free tech
    advice on forums. Fact remains that Linux, at least on the desktop, is
    plagued by issues that make Apple the more popular choice.

    Because Linux sucks.
    People try it and they dump it.

    People would rather replace all their applications and move to Apple than
    Run Linux.

    It's obvious that after 15+ years and a pathetic 0.6 percent of the desktop
    market that something is seriously wrong with Linux when it is free yet so
    few are using it.
