Journal h00manist's Journal: making linux more popular

ok, i admit it - linux use isn't growing much. what do you suggest? apps installed according to user profiles? games in all installs? catering more to the hordes of casual users, such as facebook-and-instant-messengers-and-games, who need only a couple of better apps really? creating linux-only software, with licenses that prevent running it on windows? there has to be a case, a reason, for running linux on a desktop, and there isn't one, not for the user. price just isn't cutting it - most people just don't pay for their software, making it effectively cost the same as linux - nothing.
