Personally I don't care if ignorant people don't use Linux as a desktop. Makes not the slightest difference to my usage whatsoever.
And if you still see it as "all linux" then you're being willfully ignorant, since you've already been disabused of that notion here.
One final note, as far as "catching on among the masses" goes: at my company on the great unwashed retail sites we get about 25% more Linux users than Mac users.
What was that I was saying about you and generalizations? Oh yeah, don't do that.
