Comment Linux not ready! (Score 1, Insightful) 833

Linux simply isn't ready for the mainstream consumer market. Few hardware devices and peripherals come with Linux software and drivers. People shouldn't have to search the Internet for drivers. All Linux consumer applications should come with easy to use installers which will work with all of the major Linux distros. People should never have to install drivers and software from a command line unless they want to. I sometimes use Linux, but it's not my primary or secondary operating system.
