ok, for now Linux may not be used by more than 1% of the desktop users... skins are useless most for most people... integration is difficult to achieve when you have separate projects, but things may change.

we may see pretty cool Linux desktops in a near future. look at the Helix Gnome Desktop <http://helixcode.com/desktop/> or at KDE 2...

and we could have them preinstalled on PCs or PPCs. i'm quite sure that the "average computer user" people you talk about use Windows because it comes preinstalled, not because they really want it. they would really _use_ Linux if it comes preinstalled and configured with a working Net connection (DSL or whatever)

i see Mozilla as a part of this strategy for the future.
