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.

None of your blathering answered the question.

I'm not entirely convinced he can answer it.

One of the biggest jokes Linux users make about Windows is the frequency that some users choose to reformat their PC to keep Windows running efficiently (and before I get jumped on by Windows fanboys, I'm not saying this factually accurate, I'm just reiterating the joke).

Yet here is a Linux user reformatting every 6 months and making a case that it's more sensible than running Windows for years.

It's a weird argument to read. I feel like I've just stepped into the twilight zone lol.
