Welcome to the Recurring Discussions.
nobody forces the user to buy (or to use) windows. it's a business like so many others; and about the anti-freedom and not being open sourced...well most people don't care. for them computers are just tools, not credos, not ideologies. not everyone has the time, the willingness and the passion to fiddle with things so irrelevant to them as programs and operating systems. I've used Linux since 2003, but not because I hate Microsoft or Windows but because I like diversity, change and I wanted to find out more; it's just an alternative, not a religion. at least for me
The limits of my language mean the limits of my world

Everybody knows Windows is bloatware, crapware and bugware.
So why are we having this discussion???
Talked to the owner of a repair shop today. He has been up and down and has been a beta tester for MS for both XP and Vista and is now working on Windows 7. BUT
All of his regular computing is done on Kbuntu! His shop OPERATIONAL computers are also Linux. .... BUT,
When I asked him why he did not promote Linux .. I got the answer.
"Why should I bite the hand that feeds me and pays the rent. If it were not for MS I would not have any business! MS combined with the classic clueless user generates the income to keep my shop running and pay my help!"
