Windows VS Linux

Posted 06-09-2009 at 11:49 PM by replica9000

Why is it so many people still use Windows? Why not linux?

Linux is free! Plus it's nice that I can have a nicely featured, not bloated, up-to-date system installed in ten minutes with Linux.

Or, I can run to the store, shell out too much cash for a Windows OS, hope I bought the right version that suits my needs, wait almost an hour for it to install, then have to install all of the drivers, reboot the computer countless times. Then buy a bunch more software to make Windows useful.

Is it just because people fear change? Or are they just too lazy to try something new?

    Probably because they're not aware of any alternative, or even interested. It's a question that's been asked many times on these forums. The "average user" buys a computer just for surfing, emails, etc - and there's an over 90% chance Windows is preinstalled.
