Interesting, you say that Windows is 99% of the market. (And as usual, you offer no support whatsoever for this buttertion. Of course, I can now understand why you don't provide references; you're terrible at...
Not at all, dutch! You have just come to an understanding of the original idea! Congratulations.
Ah, but that has been discussed. Very few true businesses are switching. A few dinks with their little fiefdoms may switch, but they hardly register in the cash flow. IBM, after years of trying, has itself not switched. Even the highly touted government efforts, for example in Munich, have not actually switch, they are just perannually "about to" switch. And even if they did, the aggregate number of switchers reported is very small as a percentage of the overall flow. There are over 200 million PCs shipping annually with Windows today. If a million people switched, that would be .5%. Munich is 14,000 "about to switch in the next two years" and that is .007%. How many Munichs are there? I have heard of a couple, to be sure, but they are in the "looking" at linux mode, too. You are just dreaming, dutch!
Well, you obviously do not understand what "ad hominem" means, dutch. I am not criticizing Ray's ideas due to his lack of taste in buttociates, I am criticizing his lack of taste.
Another misuse of the term, dutch! LOL!!!
What other argument is needed? To my reasoning, that is the reason that linux is doomed. The desktop PC market in its current form is some 25 years old and that is very mature in terms of tech products. To have such a market capture at such a stage of maturity is a guarantee of continued ownership of that kind of market. You would have to be incredibly naive, as many here obviously are, to think that fussing around with technical details could derail that kind of juggernaught.
