Sincerely, I don't know what for. The situation is not going to change 
because a very small group of people starts to bother computer stores 
with an unusual request. Asking to check the laptop for Linux 
compatibility with a Live CD makes sense, but with all respect, I find 
this struggle pointless. Unless you enjoy it, of course.

My bet is that Linux will become mainstream because non-computer 
oriented companies with more than 10 computers will discover the 
advantage of maintaining the computers with Linux on them. And once 
ordinary people start to get used to it, the barrier is away.

This is slowly happening, unless you've noticed that. And that will go 
on, unless the major Linux distros will be so happy about copying 
Windows' bells and whistles, that they'll adopt their flaws as well. 
Which is happening too.
