> Pick the low hanging fruit first. Make Linux a fast and easy to use desktop.
You must be kidding. We've been trying that for years. For longer then I've been involved with Linux. So right now, at a time where people are more and more using internet connected devices, phones, tables, televisions, etc but the desktop less and less. Thats the time you think we should be focusing on the desktop?
Peoples comments here are completely missing the point. Anyone arguing that we should be focusing on the tiny 1% of the market / desktop we already have is just nuts. There's a whole 99% we could be targeting, simply by focusing on web efforts.
