The "right" operating system is the one which runs the majority if the apps I need.

There is a long, long, long way to go before that will be Linux.

And installing most hardware is still a bitch compared to Windows. And sorry, no actually I'm not sorry, but having to type a load of cryptic commands to install relatively common bits of hardware is NOT simple. Especially when, as I suspect most PC users are, you are not the least bit interested in HOW it works or how clever you think you seem getting to work, all you care about it is b***dy working.
