... Windows dominates because windows dominates. That is the only reason beyond that giant government grant that enabled them to put a computer "in every home." It has nothing to do with being superior in any aspect, and everything to do with pork. Frankly, it's considered "easier to use" by most people because they were taught to use windows first. It's just like most people who grew up speaking English can't believe that it's the world's second most difficult language to learn.


I admit I first looked into linux because it was free, money wise. I (thought I did but I ) didn't understand what they meant by "freedom," and wanted a taste of what I thought they were talking about. Then my laptop got this weird problem where my desktop would crash when I closed my last explorer window (not IE). It took a reformat to fix the problem.

With most any popular Linux distribution, I have an option of up to at least about 15 different window managers, none of which will crash at the drop of a hat as windows explorer did.
