Re: It's a damn pity...
...that no one sells/supports a proper desktop Linux distro that is designed for PC users instead of geeks.
Pretty much most of the mainstream distros are actually geared towards PC users, and even pass the grandma test. They have been like this for quite some time, 6 years, maybe longer. Of course, thanks to Gnome 3 there's a Windows 8-ish moment in some graphical interfaces, but the thing is: they're pretty much useable out of the box. Ubuntu even works with WiFi out of the box, as does Fedora.
The only real stopper is the lack of MS Office, and even that is mostly because of MS's stranglehold on the word processing and spreadsheet areas.
