>Windows may suck, but they own the hardware driver market,
Linux supports more hardware than Windows supports at one time. Linux even supports that pre-XP scanner that you had to throw out because Microsoft changed the driver model and the manufacturer said "well, the customers will just have to buy new ones."
>driver installation on linux vs windows
It's laughably easier on Linux. Indeed, there aren't these "driver disks" or ridiculously large "driver packs" with bloatware, Flash, Adobe Reader, and Ask toolbars and other totally unrelated junk.
Funny, Steam has plenty of games.
>but my (obscure game)
Ah, the last refuge of the Windows shill - windows is a game launcher.
>wider universe of valuable things
I find that the software available from the repos is surprisingly good /and/ is not laden with "appeal to the lowest denominator" graphics nonsense (virus scanners on Windows with animations to demonstrate to the user that it's "doing something" as a particularly egregious example). This nonsense is rife throughout the "windows universe of valuable things."
>daily use tasks Linux is better
Indeed. And less common tasks too.
