Linux would never appeal to someone like that, at least not yet. There is a part of me that doesn't want it to.
I feel as though if Linux tries to beat windows, by becoming windows, no one benefits at all.
Or just that when you try and make it easy enough for everyone and their grandmother to run that you lose something.

You are right but this thread is not about people or how "Unix will beat Windows", it's about corporation and industry.
Also, like you said the average user doesn't care so if companies feel like pre-installing Unix on their machine they won't care either as long as it works.
