heh, I just found out not long ago that the company I work for is running Linux (One guy said it was RH, not sure though) in some areas - I never knew that and never would have guessed after talking to some of our IT personnel.
Once it gets proper traction in the enterprise and IT areas, then that's when people who never touch Linux might try it at home. Microsoft did the same with Windows, use it at work, why not at home sort of line.
