That's not what I was talking about. I'm talking about the philosophy behind the OS. *nix and Linux are made for multiple users. Using 1 user is considered an "exception".
I'm not sure about the client/server thing Borsuc, I think it is more the lack of centralised control.
Windows or DOS is the opposite: it is first a 1-user OS, but also has possibility for multiple-users (didn't have at beginning, but it grew -- similar with *nix).
I mean think of even the "drive letters" in Windows which are made for quick access for a user, but the drive system in Linux (or *nix) which is very useful for a centralized approach to mount devices, especially if on a huge network, so it makes much more sense in servers.
And that's only the top of the iceberg, so to speak.
But again, the average joe does not run a server...
If you want Linux to become popular, change it to single-user type or at least add such an option. (obviously still maintaining the multi-user environment but only with some options and NOT BY DEFAULT because the average joe does not go into settings and configurations, but the "professional" does, no problem for him).
