"Linux, from the start, was never about being a consumer
"It was an UNIX-based server operating system that could run on
some college kid's PC. Which later could then run a graphical
environment. And sound (sort of).
"That did not stop people from trying to get it to become a
consumer desktop. Caldera OpenLinux--my very first distro--was an
early attempt to present ease-of-use to those users who were 'less
than power.' Corel Linux was a better attempt, in that it brought
WordPerfect and the rest of Corel Office to the table. "
