Lindows takes a much needed step

They're releasing a version that you can install straight from CD-ROM. For four years of college I listened to the hard-core techies extol the virtues of Linux. For their needs I'm sure that it works great. But I think as part of their techo-elitism they keep it really hard to use. Microsoft and Apple on the other hand go to great lengths to make things like hardware and software installation nearly dummy proof. If Linux wants to have a prayer of dethroning anyone, the geeks who work on the OS had better wake up and make it so it adds some sort of value to my computing experience without adding headaches. Programmers are too small of a niche market to keep the Linux makers solvent.
