Intel sees Linux as the leading end-user operating system.

I have just a few months of playing around with several different Linux distor's and while I don't totally understand it and get along with it. My three favorite are Zorin OS, OpenSUSE and Ubuntu.

Who's using Linux here?

Quite a few, I think you will find. I am using Ubuntu 13.04 at the moment.

"It took a computer revolution to unseat Microsoft from its dominant market position." It was not that Linux-based Android or Apple ever managed to knock Windows off its desktop throne. They haven't. It was the smartphone and tablet rebellion which has unseated the desktop."

Windows is still the best OS for PCs. Linux has made its place as the best OS for tablets and mobiles. But, defeating Windows will be very difficult in PC world.

I like those too. Add Mint to the list.

Especially as long as software developers don't make anything native to Linux...

I used to think that until I started using Gimp and LibreOffice. As good as if not better than Photoshop and ms office. I doubt I'll ever "buy" software again. I gladly donate to developers.

There is definitely lots of really good stuff out that is free and as good as Windows software. But not enough. I run a design/engineering business so I need some very specific software. To my knowledge SolidEdge offer a Linux installer but it very expensive. And its not just software, next come all the CADalogues for standard parts. Like it or not... currently Linux is not a choice.
