Good point

The weakness of Linux is in the apps. Try setting up a Linux environment that has the same features as a Windows environment, and it will fall short. I also think you're right when you say that Linux should integrate easily into a Windows environment, since, even though we may not like it, it is a major part of our lives. I wish more people would work on developing the software that really matters, such as Openoffice.org. At the current rate of development, it will never reach the level of MS Office. We get lots of different distributions with fluffy features, but it seems to me that the things that really matter to most businesses, like software for office, education, accounting, etc., often seem to be sidelined.
