seeing all that discussion, i think windows would serve the minimal requirements of home users quite well becuase they don't do anything that would crash their systems. Ask me who works as a developer and the look of blankness and the anger in me when the windows screen shows a blue screen when i have just finished typing my project report. Ask me who develops a new software and then runs it only to know, the system is no more.
But yes, i would agree that at home , windows would be fine for people who want to surf the net and play games or listen to music. So windows would be fine for them. Windows is more of an entertainment operating system.
Windows exist and because of them companies like norton and mcafee exist trying to ward of viruses entering the ****ty OS.
Arguments open of course.
Now I lay me down to sleep ,
Pray the lord my soul to keep,
If i die before i wake ,
Pray the lord my soul to take
