@lad.kroc Damage? When you develop an operating system that lets you connect to machines and instruments then you'll have a prolific product. Apple doesn't even try. Linux has a chance but most people developing it are only interested in making the "other Windows".
NO OS STIMULATES CREATIVITY FROM NOTHING. If you are a creative person any one of these systems becomes a tool. If you're not creative then you'll just want a system to do a specific task: numbers or browsing or writing. A Mac can't make a writer write more than can a Windows PC.
As soon as a person or company packages Linux according to its strengths (task-specific systems) then you're going to see it take over industries where Windows, DOS, and Unix now dominate.
Apple's Mac? It's like a Lexus - an overpriced Toyota with a exaggerated sense of worth.
