    I've known for years that Linux--including Android--is the most-used operating system on earth. But this kind of news is great!

    Believe me, I seriously considered it.

    But I figured in there only the Linux fans would see it, and the scope and impact are much broader, true?

    Oh, and @MoodyBlues, at least when you’re talking to yourself, you know you’re in good company!

    I live in a very Penguin centric house, and I've converted a couple of neighbours, and my daughter and son-in-law after their laptop hard drives failed (Win 7 and 10 respectively).
    I do still have Win10 Pro dual booting with Mint19.1, as does my wife. But I can't remember the last time I actually wanted to use Windows.

    Isn't it fun converting people? I've lost track of how many I've convinced to ditch window$ in favor of Kubuntu Linux.

    My all-time favorite convertee was my mom. I've written much about that, so I'll leave it at this: she loved it--but couldn't get used to its speed and its lack of needing to reboot constantly. :D
    If it's been long enough that you're satisfied you don't need it, why not wipe window$ and be done with it?
