I agree -- it gets really tiring to read those "not ready for the desktop" articles over and over again. Even though plenty of people point out that the argument can be reversed ("Is Windows ready?") and that businesses have different requirements from home users, it feels like a constant barrage of paid-expert criticism.

I find the various Linux/Unix desktop offerings to be quite usable and productive in addition to being stable (the only thing to ever bite me in the ass is X, of course). Maybe one of the free desktop sites can keep track of the adoption rate.
