I want to underline that the low prevalence of the software for geeks is normal. When the market share is less than 20% – it’s called niche product. And that is good, because mass product means very different requirements, for example, favor of unification over the ability of fine-tuning. Linux won’t die, it has enough users, but unlikely to become the main OS, which (as a brand) is known to billions of *end* users

We don’t have a leading* browser today. And nobody complains. Moreover, people started to think about standards and compatibility. Just don’t try to push the software outside its applicability area. It’s the main point, i think.

*leading = more than 60% of users
