Wall Street Journal's Mossberg writes about Ubuntu on his All Things Digital column. He says "Linux's Free System Is Now Easier to Use, But Not for Everyone". I agree with him, Linux is not yet ready for the masses but it is rapidly getting there. This statement, of course, is in comparison with Windows and Mac OS X.

The main point here is – what made Walt Mossberg try Ubuntu?
Lately, however, I've received a steady stream of emails from readers urging me to take a look at a variant of Linux called Ubuntu, which, these folks claimed, is finally polished enough for a mainstream user to handle. My interest increased when Dell began to sell a few computer models preloaded with Ubuntu instead of Windows.
This is just enough proof that Linux is going mainstream. Won't be long until we get the ease of use that compares with commercial operating systems like Mac OS X.
