osOpinion: Can Linux make it?

“For the past year or so, Linux has been impossible to miss.

“I became aware of two things:”

“Linux is indeed hard to learn (all my years of PC and Mac
experience got me nowhere)”

“I am not claiming that there are few drivers out there, but
that the ones that are available are mostly for devices that
regular people don’t use (but hackers and server maintainers do)
