Fedora Core "Linux fans hope that the interface changes in Windows 8 will drive more users to Linux. But the open source operating system is facing interface challenges of its own. Part of the problem is that - after so much controversy within the Linux community - there are so many interfaces to chose from. But the new version of Fedora - a desktop focused version of Red Hat’s distribution of Linux - is offering users an easier way to choose between the many flavors of Linux GUI."

And if you really don't want to have to make that choice then there are disctributions that will cater for you aswell, but it's something you choose rather than it being the only option available.

Very well said. The options are already all there, someone interested just has to look! And not very hard either... the prominent Linux distributions tend to be of the "one-size-fits-all" type that the majority of people would find themselves more at home on right from the start.

But absolutely no alternative operating systems will matter when you have to rely on a corporation to bless each and every one of them for you just to be able to use them on your own machine. Never mind the crippling that will happen when a kernel needs to be signed by *their* signatures for any hope of running.
