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.

Games are not well represented, but desktop machines are for desktop applications, most people play games on games consoles.


I'm not going to say which platform has the most gamers, but considering things like World of Warcraft having over 10 million active subscriber, and Steam logging 5.6 million people online of whom 96% use Steam under Windows... well, I'd say tens of millions of people using desktop machines to play games is definitely not something one should just ignore. Oh, but again, that would go against your argument so you obviously do not wish to count them.
