create a linux environment that is user friendly like the windows and all the application and games will run and very easy to install..... I think all people in the world will junk windows because it's too expensive...

if you really want to beat gates, you need to make linux more user friendly, thats kinda away from what linux is. Linux for for maybe 10% of computer users I just installed linux for class and it was not a cake walk for a first timer. An I consider myself a heavy computer user, I am a Server Admin. If you want to beat gates, its got to easier!!!!

Really? I'm by no means a geek but I've installed Mandrake, Slackware, and Debian on my machines with little to no trouble. Which version did you install? I would have to disagre with Linux only being for 10% of computer users. It would take a little adjustments but almost every person could find a flavor to suit their needs. With the exception of heavy gamers. Game makers porting their wares for Linux are sadly lacking. I play America's Army and that is the only thing keeping me in Windows. Everything else I use my Linux box. Force

It would be tough to beat them. Although we are slowing growing in numbers, we beaing Nix users. I think what it would take is serious refusal to by their half-rate OS's. That would mean also not buying computers with Windows pre-installed. Not easy since most people can't find a retail computer without it. We would also need to convince more hardware makers to get out of the Windows parade and make their components compatible. A great many now do, but it's still not yet wide-spread enough to make the average newbie accept Linux as viable. People are pretty lazy and if their computer doesn't hold their hand they don't see the value. Like not locking your door because it's too hard to find your keys. Force

Make Linux adopt to all standards of computing. Ubuntu is the most stable and the best OS Linux can offer.
