2) What we talking about to with Linux?
While looking around at the latest site giving their thoughts about Linux: Best desktop distros for newbies he was reminded about ElementaryOS. A very clean MacOS X look like desktop for Linux. When you go to the site their download link they ask you to pay what you think it’s worth. Ubuntu does something similar. Linux Mint takes donations and are doing very well

So which way do you think is the better strategy to get a better desktop experience for Linux?
