Linux Desktop?  NOT!  Pirated Windows Install Instead.

According to C|net  40% of systems sold with Linux wind up modified to run a pirated copy of Windows XP. It gets worse too. In emerging markets pirated Windows may exist on 80% of modified Linux systems. That’s got to be a huge revenue hit on Microsoft.

According to the article Linux still suffers from a lack of drivers and ease of setup. I agree, that about sums it up for me.

I have been using Windows since version 3.0 and for me it has always been easy to setup and use. I tried Linux on a dual boot with Windows and eventually removed Linux because I really didn’t find any benefit of having it on my system.
