Well why don't you explain to me why an operating system that is free has such as dismal desktop market share?
Why doesn't Dell pre-install Linux?
Why doesn't IBM?
Why doesn't HP?
So why don't these major players install Linux on their desktop systems?
Maybe lack of demand has something to do with it?
Linux is free, yet,,,,, so where is Linux? A toy for geeks? Where is Linux? Really.
Let's say that GE decided to offer free microwave ovens to everyone. Do you think LG would sell another Microwave? I don't think so.
Yet, Linux is free all the time. So virtually nobody is interested.
Why is that"?
Maybe it's because Linux applications are eternally alpha quality and suck?

How about Wine?
How long has Wine been around?
So finally they are out of alpha status? August 30, 2005: Wine 20050830 Released
In what may possibly be your last chance to get a release of Wine while it's still alpha software, Alexandre dropped Wine-20050830 from the CVS tree. Noted changes include:
* A lot more theming support. * Many improvements to the various crypto dlls. * More LDAP support. * Beginnings of an MSXML implementation. * Better MSHTML support. * Emulated version now set to Windows 2000 by default. * Direct3D fixes and improvements. * Lots of bug fixes.
Binary packages are in the process of being built, but the source is available now. You can find out more about this release in the announcement. Check out our download page for packages for your favorite distribution.
So I am supposed to trust my business on this crap?
I don't think so...
Linux is all about failure.
