Kelly McNeill writes "Linux hasn't really moved its desktop presence much over the past six to eight months. I believe we have been going about evangelizing the transition the wrong way. Many are mistakenly highlighting the wrong aspects of Linux, and trying to sell promises that simply aren't true yet. I think it's time for the open source operating system to take a revised path. We all know it's free, reliable and robust, but for greater widespread adoption, the most oft-asked question from most consumers needs to be addressed: "What can I do with it?""
