Will Linux ever be ...

On another forum someone claimed that returns on the Linux net/webbooks are four times that of the XP ones. My personal opinion isn't that customers are finding Linux confusing, but more that they are confused as to what they are buying in the first place. Your Average Joe sees a keyboard and screen and thinks "computer" and for your Average Joe Computer=Windows. (The more intelligent might stretch to Computer=Windows but White Computer=Mac). I would suspect that the concept of an OS is lost on most, and so they expect the software that runs on their work/friend's machines to run on their "computer" - the importance of having a matching OS for the software that you want to use (and suitable specs) not registering at all. (I know that there are probably equivalent Linux programs, but they're not what Mr A.J. is familiar with).
