Okay, then, lets wait around and see how many people voluntarily decide NOT to put out new distros, DEs, and apps so that perhaps Linux can become more popular. Is it realistic to think that this will ever happen? I just can't see it. People will come up with new ideas and will want to implement them, and they'll continue to do so because they can.

Of course I would rather have quality. But I have no problem with the quality of the distros, DEs, and apps in Linux right now. And I have no problem with the quantity, either.

I counter that it really doesn't matter if the Linux desktop market share is only 1%. It certainly doesn't matter to me.

I don't know about that. Helping out at the Linux forums is one thing, but I don't care if more people use Linux or not. As long as Linux is out there for ME to use, I'm happy.
