Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Many people are looking to Ubuntu to be something that it is not: A mass market ready operating system designed to work with the same level of compatibility as Microsoft Windows. Where people get confused is in believing that if Ubuntu, king of the Linux distros, is not able to take the marketplace by storm, then something must be broken with desktop Linux. In this article, I'll explain what it will take to dethrone the mighty Ubuntu and gain a market share so large that it will eclipse anything seen by Ubuntu to date." More here.

"Also if I'm going to use special programmes to keep on using the same apps I used on Windows, why not just stick with Windows?"

Because sticking with Windows means you have to reformat every two months ? (and this, of course, is an exaggeration, but you get the point).

Nah, this is just something that low quality techs will have us believe because they can't be bothered/don't know how to fix the actual problems.

Then if you re-install too many times, you are forced to call MS and explain to them what you are doing before they'll let you activate the install!

Indeed. In fact, I CAN fix the problem (I do that (but not only that) for work, but since the average user isn't a techie, he'll be forced to reformat.

"Then if you re-install too many times, you are forced to call MS and explain to them what you are doing before they'll let you activate the install!"

And this, again, speaks against windows.
I am forced to "please, let me reactivate" a software I have bought. Great.
