And it's going to stay that way until it is as easy to use and manage as Windows.
I have no wish to go backwards to the Windows ways for managing, and handling updates. I much prefer not NEEDING to manage much of anything, and having the updates show up ready to go, and not even requiring reboots for anything short of a kernel update. For thos 2 points, many distros are WAY ahead of Windows.
As for the rest of your post - it WOULD be nice if more hardware came with Linux drivers OOTB, but that hardly under anyone's control. Sticking to standards when choosing hardware eliminates much of that problem though.
Also - sorry can't much your crash numbers over the years... can't get it to crash yet! It won't even slow down significantly if untended for a few weeks.
Actually, I suspect your Linux info is just out of date... your points would have been valid 5 years ago.\
