Linux Why is it that the average computer user still chooses to spend hundreds of dollars on Windows or Mac when there are countless Linux alternatives that they could download, install and make use of completely free of charge? Some answers here.

For every linux distro out there, another setup is there. It is dumb to have a distro that uses directory x for program a & another use directory y for the same program. Why is it like this? Linux should have a directory standard, it is like each distro programer never talks to another about standards. I mean why not have a application directory where the apps. in all distros go? One more thing who ever said they don't want new users dumbing up the forums, that is just the aditude that is prob. a major part of people staying away. When PC-BSD gets more mature, I may leave linux behind.
