I can't deny that Linux would confuse a great number of users from Windows and Mac, but it has come a long way in recent years in terms of both usability and driver support. The only issue here is vendor support, and we can't forget that video games are driving the industry. nVidia doesn't keep making more powerful graphics cards so Microsoft Word will look better and run faster, they do it because the games and gamers want more power. If one big game developer made a game for Linux, drivers would be developed alongside the game and the industry would soon follow.

That's absolutely what I thought.

The list starts off strong with roughly 5000 script generated accounts. The usernames and passwords are just too obviously random to be real.

It looks like it then goes on to some phished accounts.

Also looks like a large amount are duplicates.

Have any tests been done to gauge the success of psychologists; sociologists; designers and developers of internet technology, mobile devices, and online and virtual games; business executives; educators, and opinion leaders interested in the effects of interactive technologies who haven't read the article? How do we know it's a must read?
