I fear you miss completely the point. Most computer users (large public ones) are completely computer illiterate; Most do not know that the monitor (screen) is not the computer, don't know what is a programm or an application.

I made windows to linux migration, in fact mostly word to openoffice and the only thing the users wanted to know was 'where is my "icon"'. Once they understood that openoffice icon was slightly different from the word one and know the new one, they where satisfied. (but here was a sysadmin to configure they computer)

Most dont even know what version of windows they run.

Buffalo, Apple, TomTom to name but a few.

Do you think you will make Apple change??

the only location we can go is professional systems; Once people know Linux run on they professional computer, they can use it at home (an can ask the company admin in case od problem).

On the public, we can only gain the computer addicts that are not also game addicts (and most of they friends)

the problem is not ease of use, but habit and comercial power
