Why Desktop Linux is nowhere, part 2

Posted 01-19-2009 at 02:32 PM by AGer (Void cries or bashing time)

In Part 1 I was frustrated by the low adoption of Linux. I have the pleasure to recall some (just selected few from very, very many) reasons for that.

Desktop Linux is nearly nowhere in terms of hardware support. For the vendor side, this is natural due to low adoption. Hardware vendors do like Linux since they understand that money saved on OS and software can be spent on hardware, but supporting Linux is not a competitive advantage and nonsupporting it is not a shame.

This is the question I got and, in order to keep the original thread on track, I opt to answer it here.

Desktop Linux is nowhere in terms of the adoption rate. Just look at the w3schools statistics. Depending on how you look at it, Linux will either...
