And you STILL want to do business with them? You STILL want to trust their OS with your personal files and/or communications?
It's pretty hard to buy a laptop without "doing business" with them. And I'm sure the NSA can get in my Linux box with little effort, too.
If MS's poorly designed, feature-poor, buggy, user-hostile OS doesn't make folks change OSes I don't think anything will. The only thing keeping Windows on this notebook is laziness, and except for the Patch Tuesday bullshit W7 is almost tolerable. But I'll have to put Linux on it pretty soon, it gets slower every Patch Tuesday.
I'm running kubuntu on the tower. When a patch notification comes in, one click and it's done. No lengthy reboots with "configuring patches, do not turn off your computer." No reopening all the apps that were open after it reboots, no hunting for where I was on that document I was working on when the patch notice comes through.
I haven't booted the tower in months, it only gets shut off when I know I won't be using it for a few days. When I turn the power on it enters the password for me (I live alone) and reopens everything that was open when I shut it down. Guys, if you haven't tried Linux you don't know what you're missing.
