Submission + - Why Linux is not an option.

Conor Turton writes: From The Inquirer , an excellent article illustrating why Linux will never be an option for most people. This is a follow on to another story on The Inq showing why Product Activation will kill Microsoft and push people to Linux . As the author points out, the rant against Microsoft's Product Activation completely misses the point — that 90% of PC users will never open their PC and use it until it dies at which point they'll just go buy another so product activation will never be an issue.

It seems to me that this is the massive point that Linux advocates seem to not understand when bleating on about Product Activation.

He's dead, Jim.
