technical girlfriend uses a Linux laptop. Sure, it's a niche and not a mass market, but it's still pretty
I'm not really sure what point you're trying to make by saying these uses are "not representative
of anything" or that there's "no future." There seems to be a perfectly viable niche that is at least

users (and their family and friends, on occasion) using Linux on the desktop (or laptop). It's a niche,
but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
