Hopefully, never.

Everything has its Pros and Cons. Im not convinced that GNU/Linux can be 
made ready for the average user without losing some of the power I love 
about it. 

Actually thats kindof a wide statement since I think much of GNU and some 
versions of Linux are already pretty close to being there. But I definetly 
would be behind an effort to NOT have that become the goal of GNU/Linux 
advancements. Leave it to other OS's to be the "training wheels" for new

Thats how they get to be guru's. Instead, ask someone who uses a computer
everyday and still knows nothing about computers.
