    To make Linux more acceptable on the desktop, you need to make it work easily for people and perhaps also use a pre installed Apple style approach to this.
    I know plenty of people have struggled with windows and I think MS is ahead on desktops cause they were first to market, it mostly works, PC companies and hardware support MS and public perception is everything.

    It is easier as a company which is like its own private kingdom to by fiat, pronounce that we will use Linux, make it happen to the underlings.

    I have a feeling that more people are going to move to Ubuntu due to Windows 8 being so new user unfriendly and the metro interface having no place within the business sector.

    I feel that Ubuntu can be a cost effective solution for a professional workplace whereas Windows 8 is turning out to be targeted at the home based user with such applications as connection to the Xbox and other various un-buisnesslike apps.

    I link Linux will get bigger the more Microsoft moves away from creating business effective operating systems.

    Nice talk, have watched the whole video now. Jim Zemlin is definitely a good speaker. He has a pragmatist approach, which can be refreshing if you are used to the more ideological debates regarding free software. Although I'm more on the idealist side I like the arguments he gives for adopting Linux, much more convincing for business types than the free software discourse. On the other hand, Linux as a multi purpose kernel is such a powerful concept it needs no salesman
