I don't understand... what would be unethical about this?
If they achieve to clone only 1, it is doomed to masturbate a lot.
Also, in France I had terrible problems with latencies and ofc with Youtube
I strongly disagree(actually by definition this is false). Linux never suffered from inaccessibility, you *ALWAYS* had your repositories full of software. On top of that you had several solutions to pick from. I'd I agree with you *if* you mentioned poor quality software(e.g. feature incomplete, or difficult to use)
Actually, MS and Apple copied the way *BSD and Linux distribute their software/packages,simply via repositories... Yes the Apple Store the AppStore the aPPsTORE and all those "I invented it first" *bs* concepts, decent from the simple idea of creating a repository for all your available programs so the user had a front-end to the package manager that collected the software list and you could choose your application.
Simple as that
In conclusion, Windows reigns as king because they are the only one who is licensing their OS to PC makers... and PC makers want to keep following the safe path to big sales and that goes with the one who is able to advertise. End of story.
Actually MS is making windows crappier and crappier for production because they never made money from those huge purchasers. A company or an institute that buys services from MS, get their Windows and some version of their Office suite for free, while they pay a lot for other staff. So they focus on fb users and "twitterers" because those are the ones who are paying for basic and home edition.... plain useless and feature naked versions.
E.G. When you got a laptop with windows 7 and you were sad. You had to setup a dual boot because you wanted to have the joy of windows' games and features and ease of use from time to time, but when you were serious you were working on Linux ofc.
Now, you get a laptop with windows 8 and things are pretty clear. No more dual f'ing boots, no "God damn it I forgot to pick the right OS on GRUB2"... now you are just relaxing on boot times, because you have only one choice...just Linux.
