Comment: Linux is a Zombie OS (Score 1) 596

Whenever a PC user gets fed up with something his PC cannot do, he either upgrades the OS, or ditches the machine.

MSFT depends on this to sell new copies of its OS. It exists in symbiosis with hardware vendors, who sell hardware/upgrades to handle the new OS.

Some of the machines that are supposed to be going to the PC graveyard are turning into Linux's Zombie Army.

Every day the Zombie Army grows larger. How long until the hardware vendors see the utility in servicing this market?
