I don't think it's silly, but I do think it's a lot further off than many
Linux fans think.

Unix has been a workstation OS for years and years... no reason that Linux
shouldn't be capable of running workstations.  It just won't be adequate
for least-common-denominator end-user desktop deployment until it has the
apps everyone wants/needs.

I believe this will be achieved for the home market when Intuit ports
Quicken to Linux.
