Linux "If you consider NetApplications' data set, then Linux owns only about 1 percent of the desktop OS market and Windows has almost 92 percent. But if you consider all computing platforms, including mobile, than Windows has only 20 percent and Linux has 42 percent - and that would be in the form of Google's Android alone." No more or less legitimate than claiming Windows owns 92% of the market. It's all a matter of perspective.

Also who the fuck uses driver cds these days? Windows will auto detect and install drivers and will update drivers through Windows update.

I just reinstalled a friends laptop the other day. Windows 7 did not support any of the hardware natively out of the box. Kinda hard to run Windows update if there is no network connection.
