Doesn't consume a lot of time for me.
There are far more games for Linux, than for the Mac.
I *didn't* call you Flatfish. I called you Oxford.
Um....did you mean to say something coherent there?
More tested, more bugfixes. Debian is conservative for a reason.

The handful of people that have problems complain loudly, those who don't have any problem at all have no need to complain at all.
Then your company is behind the curve.
10% of new desktop sales are Linux boxes...preinstalled.
You keep sounding like someone on pot.
Of course Gartner claims they will all be replaced with pirated Windows....but that makes little or no sense. When people buy pre-installed they generally use what comes with the system, especially in places where computers are expensive.
Of course, in some countries (yes, rich, developed ones), percentages are higher...
In Western Europe, about 15 percent of new desktops ship with Linux.
Only in the US is it abysmally low, due to Microsoft's illegal tactics and influence over the corrupt government.
I didn't. I brought up *only* pre-installed units from OEMs.
Adding Linux installs from downloads, and purchases of the CDs increases the numbers of users.
Against criminal activity?
No it doesn't.
It's easier to install than MS. MS takes an hour to install and when you do you have a system without software, without drivers for much of your hardware, without security, etc...
Your average Linux install takes 20 minutes, and is pretty complete.

Quite a lot of printers are supported too.
The iPod is definately supported.
ATI is pooware on any OS. But it *can* be made to work... People should choose nVidia.
What about it?
There are a few Lexmark printers that work with Linux... However, Lexmark printers, on the whole, don't work on *any* OS.
Besides, if you want to take up the lack of support take it up with the companies that refuse to support Linux.
Why, you ran out of hardware that Linux doesn't support for the most part. How about you go into hardware that Windows fails on. It's a *huge* list. I mean, you seem to be pushing people to Windows now over Linux even though you use OSX...and were pushing it before...
Yes they do. Mine's fine. How's yours?
It's not a problem.
Seriously man, lay off the pot.
