The most of supper computer in this world run Unix-like operating system. The most tablet also run Unix-like system. Operating system with the KISS philosophy are powerful.
But what really happen ? Most of computer user have lack skill, and educated to enable them to use free and open-source software. The computer user have a mind set that: "windows is EASY to use, *nix are not", and because no make money, open-source developer don't grown. Windows are the are the good way for developer to make business.
When cloud computing are more available. With good Internet connection, people make thing change forever. This is great change and this is a challenge for Microsoft. More developer can make business without Microsoft, and more user can use software without Windows.
Sell software license never a good way to make money. Sell software as service is good method to make software work more perfectly. When you use a software service , you give money to contribute it. And developer make they software opensource is a great way to marketing.
SaaS is the way thing work. To use software, Window is not the primary. And Unix-like system will back again. Open-source ecosystem make cloud-computing, and user can use service without Microsoft.
My favorite film is "The Great Dictator" by Charles Chaplin. And this also a my favorite quoted on film:
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. Soldiers! Don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you; who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel! Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts!
Back to open-source software service, and use you money to contribute to it. And you will make
great dictator on
