That's my point. You won't find many (any?) of those companies working on a GUI interface or a desktop for home users.
Unfortunately most of these resources are dedicated to the kernel and making server software run better.
That's what I'm saying. While marketing is part of it, you need developers and designers to make it look good as well as feel good. I never said Linux was the problem. It's not. Give me a few millions and I'll show you what I can get running on Linux.
Neither of these issues have held MacOS back, so I do not believe it is the major barrier for Linux. My own feeling is that Linux on the desktop has no funds for marketing
Actually, you don't have to give me the money. I'll do exactly what you said. Point people to the Mac and you see what lots of time and money spent on programs can produce for a Unix/BSD/Linux system and far, far better than on Windows.
