"Few people are forced to deal with mainframes and COBOL and rarely anyone does so voluntarily; those subjecting themselves Microsoft and Facebook are far greater in number."

No one is *forced* to use either Facebook or Microsoft.

I've managed to be Facebook free since it was invented and haven't suffered an\y significant angst because of that.

As for Microsoft, even I have Linux and OpenOffice. You might make a case for gaming, but that world has moved solidly toward consoles anyway. Turnkey consoles are bought for game selection, not underlying O/S.
