Long-time Slashdot reader shanen shared the article,
along with some
new thoughts on why people really stay with Windows:
Are they, really? I posted some stats a few months back that seemed to
show that much of the growth in PCs was coming from Chromebooks, not
Windows machines. And while Microsoft continues to rake in fat profits,
that is more and more coming from the business side, not the consumer
All this hints of an undercurrent of people quietly switching away from
Windows, without making any great fuss about it. And this is all
happening by word-of-mouth, without the benefit of headline-grabbing
multi-million-dollar PR budgets. And without showing up in major online
website visitor surveys.
Why do you think Microsoft is trying to make Windows more Linux-like,
if its market dominance was so secure?
