Submission + - Desktop Linux is Dead (pcworld.com)

digitaldc writes: According to PCWorld, desktop Linux is dead...
It kills me to say this: The dream of Linux as a major desktop OS is now pretty much dead.Despite phenomenal security and stability--and amazing strides in usability, performance, and compatibility--Linux simply isn’t catching on with desktop users. And if there ever was a chance for desktop Linux to succeed, that ship has long since sunk...Ultimately, Linux is doomed on the desktop because of a critical lack of content. And that lack of content owes its existence to two key factors: the fragmentation of the Linux platform, and the fierce ideology of the open-source community at large.
