The conclusion that is being discussed is [paraphrased]:

Most people aren't aware that they don't have to use the OS that their computer was shipped with.

Now I don't see how community optinion can be split over this. For a start, most people are only vaguely aware of the concept of an OS. Most[?] people have heard of Linux nowadays, but the fact that it can freely replace Windows and [usually] provide a decent graphical interface and replace all their [non-technical] applications is not something that the majority of people are aware of, in any realistic definition of 'aware'.
