    Very good story! It brings up a couple of thoughts:

    1. What about Ximian & OHS?

    2. What can our e-journal do to enhance public computer literacy? Particularly make people comfortable with open-source OS.

    3. Which Linux desktop is from De Icaza?

    I would particularly like to see a discussion around Item 2. Maybe after a bit of rambling and wrong tacks, we can develop a viable plan. That
    plan ought include some assessment of what the "curriculum" for public computency should include.

    One testimony to the lack of this "human system - tool system co-evolution" is that a huge number of people are buying new computers simply
    because they are afraid to try "upgrading" an operating system. Computer manufacturers love new OS versions for that reason. But it says
    something about our society.
