This is the main point!
Other than that I believe anybody using Windoze definitely has a reason to “convert” or ditch it.
A little story I was part of like 20 years ago.
End of 2003 I had a 1999 desktop (400 Mhz), which at that time had Suse installed, KDE.
A friend visited me and saw me working on this machine, he said ‘Oh, your windows look a bit different!’
The naughty devil inside me replied:
- Yes, my friend Mr. X got a beta release from Microsoft for testing, it is the next coming Windows due by end of 2004. He gave me a copy.
He tried this new windows, I just showed him around a little, that they have a new Office called Open Office,… etc, installed, updated… and he worked like 15 minutes, playing music, videos… copying, pasting… etc.
He said “WOW, you got the latest processor 1 GHz… it is so fast!” (it was a 400 MHz processor from 1999).
I told him, no, this is an old PC, 1999, 400 MHz… etc.
He asked for a copy of CD to install on his PC, I told him no, I have to ask permission of Mr. X to give you a copy, but anyway, backup your data till I come to you to install this new Windows.
He spent another hour playing with it, installing, trying this and that…
On his way out, he confirmed he adores this new windows, it is wonderful… it is fast… it is responsive… it is stable… (didn’t crash for over 2 hours)… and almost begged me not to put him down.
To be honest… I told him… ok… I will come and let “you” install it while I’m with you, just in case. But to be honest this is not Windows, This is Linux!
He said, oh no, thanks… I would not install it… no way!
Asked him why?
His reply was absolutely the opposite of what he said before, it is not easy to use, it is not easy to install software, it is difficult… it is complicated!
I believe this is a problem of “human nature”
