I'm not either, but there is a major difference between Linux users and 
Linux desktop users.  I have been both for many years, have converted my 
wife's desktop to Linux some years ago, and can even get the kids to use 
it for OOo and web browsing when they are not playing Windows video 
games.  About 10% of the people at my workplace use Linux for the 
desktop despite sizable pressure to the contrary from the CIO.
