Microsoft says 'majority' of Windows 10 use will be 'streamlined S mode'

>> Like one of the commenters wrote, most drank the Kool-Aid long ago and have fixed on Windows as the One True Grail long ago.

No, the industry decided to do that because MS is an ecosystem where you can make money in a traditional fashion that normies understand well: "I give you Windows/Service for £X and you resell at £X+100".

The industry locked themselves with MS around their necks and what the industry decides makes them more money with the least effort is pushed into the masses.

And the masses like convenience above all, Windows gives them plenty of that.

This dynamic is called market inertia and it is hard to overcome. But the question is, does it need to be? certainly not for the normies.

It is you IT professional who should start looking at other stuff, not because MS is evil and wants to control your computer, it is because you who will benefit the most from learning FOSS stuff.
