" Those applications may not have been stellar"

You have a gift for understatement!

"Linux is still chasing the desktop user"

Some distros are, but there isn't anything like a universal agreement that it's a desirable thing for Linux to become a mainstream desktop OS. Personally, I hope that it doesn't really happen -- there are too many bad effects to that. I want an OS that is solid, efficient, and works well. Those goals seem to preclude being suitable as a mass market consumer OS.
