"...Much as a moderately competent cook can combine simple and inexpensive ingredients to create a memorable and healthful meal, the Linux administrator can combine inexpensive hardware along with a free operating system and applications to create a minor server-centric masterpiece that provides users the necessities of computing while boosting their immunity to attack.

Ordinary users find the server-centric Linux system as easy to use as Windows: All the difficult system administrative tasks are handled for them by an administrator. The user simply points-and-clicks his or her way to applications that are similar, and often the same, as found in a Windows environment... just as eating a freshly prepared soup is no more difficult than sucking down salty, vitamin-depleted slop from a can.

This is why I believe Linux will conquer the enterprise desktop before it reigns supreme on the home front. Linux server-centrism is ideally suited to groups of people because it requires only one person to learn some basic recipes to cook-up Linux for droves of ordinary users who have no desire, and frankly, no need to learn much more than how to manipulate a mouse and enter their passwords."
