Linux proponents seem to think Linux is ready for the desktop, but as far as I can tell in the past 10 years or so little has changed.
It is still not ready for the desktop, does not have nearly enough compatibility and has ideology gets in the way too much for actual progress (Alsa vs. PulseAudio, KDE vs. Gnome, Unity .. etc.)
I'm not sure I get you there, all of the variables you've listed are choices users and distro packagers make, not ideologies.--
