Who is it that wants lots of people to use Linux? Does anyone have any links to articles or speeches by Linus, Greg Kroah-Hartman or similar about trying to get more people using Linux? Are there any similar by Patrick Volkerding or any of the Slackware or Debian teams?
I ask because I keep seeing these articles about "What Linux must do to get more market share" but they never quote anyone stating that as an aim so I would like to compare what has been stated as an aim and what these articles talk about.
