I agree with a lot of what Andrew says - though I'm not that much of a 
Debian fan (*).
Linux is much more than another operating system.

Many scientists, engineers and users in business and the arts do not see 
it that way. Linux has become popular, on cheap yet high performance kit.
All many people now care about is 'getting the job done' or
'running my codes'. We should realise there is much to be gained from
open standards and LSB compliant systems.

(*) Not ideology - I've just used other distros.
