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.

I'm sorry, but I don't consider cheap laptop and CAD-software to be in the same category.


I'm sorry, but you (nor anyone else on this thread) still haven't managed to come up with a single reason why anyone should have to put up with the myriad shortcomings of Windows, and to add insult to injury, actually have to PAY for the pain of doing so.
