Windows "Yesterday my desktop died, and so I went ahead and got a brand new Windows 8 laptop. It's always been my feeling that as years go on, user experience has been going down for people who use a computer and the Internet, because of decisions all companies make that are clearly anti-user, either because they think they know best, or in many cases, for financial gains. But from spending all night reinstalling everything and customizing the laptop, I realized just how bad it has become." Probably the biggest reason to go Mac or Linux. Such a shame Microsoft found it more important to pressure OEMs into silly Secure Boot nonsense instead of doing something about the anti-user crapware disaster. Goes to show who Microsoft cares about. Hint: it ain't you.

Not mature and high quality compared to ...?

Android did hit the market at the right time but the reason they are still growing in market share, "sold" units and activations is that majority of customers seem to think its the best value for price, mature enough, of high quality enough for them then ANY other competitor out there.

I certainly agree that there could be better alternates. Meego was such a candidate. But its not there and those alternates that are there are not as good.

Whatever we think, feel or believe is better does not matter. Only the hard numbers do and they say: Android is the best OS out there in all terms that matter.
