I agree 100% with that, based on my own experience _half a dozen years
ago!!_, and also based on what I watch around me from time to time...:-)

P.S. I'm afraid the problem is not how much Linux (any flavour) will be
able to improve -this could be being increased until the infinite, while
the Linux user amount just keeping indefinitely under 1% :-(
What Linux (any flavour) needs is more IBM's, more Novell's, more Asian
Governments adopting it, more institutions, corporations and official's
establishments, more "dirty" money (yeah).
