I call Linux a closed OS because It's most definitely not a mass market or even geek market. I think even hard core geeks are going to get sick of messing with Linux. As some of us know when you get older, you just want sh*t to work and the only thing I want to geek on Is hardware.
Obviously you don't know any hardcore geeks or even normal geeks. The people you thought of as Geeks may be marsians, but as far as i know geeks, few of them even consider fiddling in windows because it takes so much time to get things to work properly and start doing something, its really a hassle for most of them. Yeah, maybe if you get older, you just want the sh*t to work just like windose.

Wow that GUI sounded pretty useful, specially when not using a standard mouse as your input method eg touchpad and to a lesser extent touchscreen, although I don't think it would work to well if you are doing a bit of work while avoiding the mouse (such as writing code or similar where you don't exactly want to reach for the mouse but can still get around using <alt> etc so long as u aren't one of those EMACS using people lol). Are there any developed distros that use this interface at all or is it just you musing?
