Submission + - Desktop Linux Will Never Succeed Without Best Buy (

An anonymous reader writes: Tom's Hardware has a feature titled State of the Personal Computer, where they look at Windows's diminishing market share, and OS X and Linux's rising market share. They have a great discussion of Windows and OS X, and make a great argument on why Desktop Linux has yet to succeed. They argue that Desktop Linux will only work if a store like Best Buy and Geek Squad get involved with an Apple Store like experience. Great read.
