Re: Why Linux Sucks
Windows users love to scour the web searching for apps and programs to install. Free games. Open source has some sites for their products, but they don't promote them much, only linux users know their names, and the sites don't look like window product sites. I know these sites cost $$ and it's passed on in the price of the products.

SC is better, but it's like shopping from home. People want to get out to the mall. (web)
A good web site can show that 'download and install' is just as easy as it is in Windows.
