I love Linux; don't get me wrong. I think it's great. I'm like the
undertaker in the beginning of The Godfather: "I believe in Linux. Linux
has made my fortune, and I've raised my daughter in the Open Source
manner."  (I don't really have a daughter).

BUT, I don't think it will ever be easy for the "typical" user. Nor should
it. Linux is a server OS, and if you want an iMac, then you should buy
one. But Linux can't be everything. DOS was great - you could turn it off
at any time without damaging anything. Same with the Apple II. But Linux
will never be right for Ma & Pa Kettle.

Bring on the flames...
