Does Desktop Linux Need a Steve Jobs?

What an interesting question.  Apple had Jobs and Windows had Gates.  Do we really need a persona like that to get linux on the desktop rolling?  Answering that question is the attempt of this article over at Datamation.com.  The concept seems to completely fly in the face of the community focus that the Open Source strives to be.  At the same time the kernel has Linus.  That one person who everyone knows and associates with it.  One of the big challenges we have with that is that there isn’t only one desktop.  Gnome, KDE, XFCE and most recently Unity are some of the biggest.  But there are more.  So which team should be that person?  Let us know.
