Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

Most Windows users couldn't care less about Linux or about bolstering Windows, they just want their stuff to work

Yep. Many of them will pay for subscription to an anti-virus vendor, to keep their systems working. Some of them will call Windows help to try to get their system back to working, and spend hours frustrated because they can't get it sorted that way.

Some people are savvy and smart, and can keep a Windows system clean and going well indefinitely. Good luck to them.

Most people are lumbered with having to take their machines back to the shop every so often in order to keep them working.
