Re: Games, anyone?

The reason most people stay with Windows is because it supports the software that they want to use, whether that is games or home/office and hey know how to use it. Linux has come on in it's support for games but it's still way behind Windows and there is no Linux equivalent of the Outlook/Word/Excel combination.

Yes, I know there is Open Office and others and they do work; just not as well or as intuitively for Joe Public I'm afraid. Top all this off with sporadic vendor hardware support and, sometimes, needing to head to console to carry out something that it Windows is just a few mouse clicks, and it's a non-started I'm afraid.
