Windows: Will it survive, die or thrive????

Posted 03-12-2013 at 04:27 PM by Nbiser

This is a very interesting article in my opinion. Windows is only hanging on because that is what people are used to, and Microsoft has, so to speak, cornered the manufacturers into pre-installing it on their computers. This article was written in the days of Vista; 7, a relatively good OS, came in-between Vista and 8, helping to stave off the death of Microsoft. Now with the advent of Windows 8, we are seeing another awful OS coming out of Redmond. Even the non-techs and non-linux folks embodied in the everyday consumer can only take so much abuse from Microsoft. In order to continue the demise of Windows the commercial versions of Linux must make contracts with the computer makers like Windows has, while, at the same time, keeping within the concepts of free software and open-source. This will get computers with Linux into the market for the average consumer to use. This is necessary because the average consumer won't download their own Linux operating system from the Internet and then install it. However, after using the commercial versions of Linux, they will be more confidant in themselves as computer users and some of them will then install their own Linux operating systems.
