Question: Which is better, linux or windows. Or, no : Why isn't linux mainstream yet?


Well, I just thought I would ask you fellas these original, never asked question's. As seeing no one ever came up with an question like that, I thought I would ask you people.

Well ........



Seriously: Why on earth does a thread like "" Why haven't we broken Windows monopoly yet? have SO many replies??? Come on, that thing has been done to the death. Just point the guy who asked it to the million other threads and get it over with.
Don't like to behave like a wanna be mod, but I find it rather surprising / irritating.

Nah, at first I started to think the same thing. But then I took a step back:

Why not entertain his idea, at least until it evolves into the same old thing. I agree, we could just point him to "Y use linux instead of windows" (and it was mentioned more than once) but it's not a big deal if people want to get back into the debate on it.

Cool

I know this is a joke, and that's fine, but it's only a matter of time until someone does turn this into another detabe because of the title, so i'll close this thread. thanks
