You must of noticed for yourself the blunders Microsoft has made with Windows 8 (no start button), now adding one in 8.1. First there was talk of Windows 9 coming out, now they decided to call it Windows 10. I’m also hearing they may offer Windows 10 for free. Could it be from the pressures they are feeling from Apple offering free upgrades and Linux making more inroads into the desktop area? I read HP is interested in developing a Linux operating system for their pc’s. As Linux keeps on getting better and better, the pressure keeps mounting for Microsoft to perform and put more money into advertising.
Linus Torvalds (The inventor of Linux) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linus_Torvalds recently stated he wants to dominate the desktop operating system world. Linux has practically dominated every other computer environment, why not the desktop?
