yes i agree with lot of parts, but:
"" there isn't a market for home support right now and that the way to make money off the
desktop is through corporate desktop support. IMO the path to the desktop for Linux involves
wide adoption on the corporate desktop first "
Doesn't have to be necessarily that way.
Even on corporate, when a particular desktop implementation distinguish itself by being rock
solid and no need for much support... from the hell is supposed the money came from ?
*That is precisely the MSFT model*... that is why there isn't too much eagerness to resolve
the dependency hell... that is why thin clients has not cough up like a wild fire... that is
the reason most of commercial distros opt for binary distributions when they could have a real
selling point with source code...
Lock your environments in managed corporate environments... there is a lot of blurred support
frontiers, and eagerness from directors and administrators to cover their asses, in their
decisions, by trowing more money at issues... there is plenty of parallel support coming
by,... there is plenty of stupid users to blame for... its MSFT model, wrapped, barrel and
stock... what a wast!
