5. Ditching for something better invariably means ditching for worse at least 90% of the time.

The likes of LibreOffice, Gimp, etc are certainly fit for purpose but until Photoshop, popular accounting and business software, games run natively on Linux, most users won’t consider switching.

The only thing that will change this mindset is that more users are working directly in a browser, so even using MS Office and OWA on Linux is now a realistic option for many people who don’t use advanced office functions. I’m actively looking at having several users with this scenario, including online Dropbox or better storage, will be better than the frustrations and instability of Windows 10.
