Re: Five technologies you shouldn't bother looking out for in 2016
"Thanks, you just proved my point that noone in the real world needs Linux on desktop."
Your view of the real world obviously is at odds with mine.
Apart from the scientific angle I use Linux for everything I do. RAW photo development/editing, video editing, PIC programming (MPLAB works perfectly in WINE) and now there is a Linux version anyway, and all the usual stuff - except I don't use cr*p like Facebook (sob !) but e-mail, browsing, Google Earth, LibreOffice, VirtualBox and lots of other stuff.
In fact I can't understand your problem - why would you want everyone to use Windows ?? What's it to you ?
