I am so sorry for them. I can understand using Android-based systems as a desktop, but Linux as a desktop... always makes me wonder how people have so much spare time to afford that. And what are they doing exactly with it (aside of browsing/email), considering severe lack of applications, and a few existing ones being so cumbersome.
Also, I would like to understand how much is "alot" in your definition? Because even working in hardcore IT company, I see only a handful of those people (and in fact, one of them has just escaped back to the Windows world).
Now, don't get me wrong - I am not some Linux hater, and I am talking about desktops only here... using Linux as a server is a totally different story.
