No it doesn't. Perhaps desktop linux has already succeeded: It is a desktop that is perfect for people who actually know what they're doing. The only thing the popular systems have done is create new levels of incompetence and ignorance. The average user has now reached fisherprice levels of aptitude, and it shows. Instead of enabling creativity and intellect like in the 80s and 90s, most of today's cpus spend their time churning javascript from social media sites, ad networks, and content barren sites with oversized fonts and needless clutter. They're popular, though, so it's all good, right?

"Inane and stupid" is, after all, generally a pretty good description of the futile and unpopular.

Only if you're popular and stupid, I guess. Of course, people like that are often too ignorant and stupid to realize how much their worlds depend on the less popular elements they scorn.
