Yet the majority of people in the world were comfortable able to switch to Android and iOS tablets when the opportunity became available.
So what? Most people have lower expectations of what they can do on a tablet compared to a desktop/laptop. Few people expect to do any serious level of word processing or image manipulation on a tablet, so the limitations of currently available software doesn't really bother many people.
And frankly, though I've had less time "dabbling", than you, I took to Linux like a fish to water. It's much easier and way more consistent to use, and I can't remember a time I was unable to do something with the Linux OS/Applications stack that I would have been able to do with Microsoft's efforts.
Much easier? Hell no. Some parts are easier, but some parts are a godawful mess due to people not caring about the corner cases.
I suspect your problem (and that of many other FUD posters here) with Linux is that you don't want to like it, and look for any corner case you can to validate your dislike. In the mean time, you're giving Microsoft a free pass on all the risks, irritations and incompatibilities they bring to the table.
Here's the issue I have - you've picked a side, black or white, and don't like the fact there's a shitload of grey in the middle. I'm not posting FUD since I experience this on a daily basis and it shits me that people like you dismiss me so easily. I don't give Microsoft a free pass on anything - they've proven themselves capable enough that most people still use and support their OS far more than Linux distros. That tells me a lot.
