  • Here comes the childish flame war!

    People use Windows for the same reasons they always did:
    - that's what they know
    - cheap hardware
    - they're forced to at work
    - best non-console gaming platform
    - have an app that doesn't have a counterpart on other platforms
    - are ignorant of the advantages of other platforms (not intended to be inflammatory, but a good many users (on any platform, actually) are ignorant of the platforms they do not use)

"Spock, did you see the looks on their faces?" "Yes, Captain, a sort of vacant contentment."
