LXer: Why Mark Shuttleworth Is Important to Desktop Linux

Published at LXer:

For too long, we’ve been sitting around wringing our hands, sometimes proclaiming this to finally be the year of the Linux desktop without doing anything to make it happen and sometimes bemoaning the fact that the world still hasn’t discovered Linux as the secret to computing happiness. The thing is, the world never knows anything about secrets until they’re not secret anymore. We’ve been wanting Linux to just “catch on,” while we’ve been blaming the OEMs for not automatically pushing our home grown geek-centric distros with the same elan they put behind their bread and butter Windows.

The author's check is on the way. That's why having access to international banksters who can pull "money" (fiat currency) out the crack of their @#$ is so important! It's like a "free-market society" or something like that.
