[REBOL] Dvorak on Linux.

Minimizing the cult factor. I think the Linux community might keep Linux off the desktop-just
because of fanaticism. There's no bigger turnoff to most of humanity than to be associated
with a bunch of scary lunatics or creepy nutballs. This problem hurt Amiga the most,
and it continues to plague Apple. We're talking about computers, not lifestyles. These
are operating systems, not political parties. Most Linux users are pretty mellow, but
there are just enough of the angst-riddled and insecure Mac-type users among the community
to turn off the general public and eventually kill the platform for good. This is dangerous.
