So, is Linux ready for the masses?

The answer is that Linux isn't but that some of the major distros are.

My top choice was Novell's SLED 10, with Mandriva 2007 a close second. Widescreen issues and lack of 3D effects aside, Ubuntu is the most popular choice and Open SUSE is right up there with it.

Xandros is a polished system for those who just want to get away from Windows.
