I think this is why Linux isn't mainstream or even relevant. It's because Linux users use most of their time on Windows forums trashing that OS. I like Linux, don't get me wrong. However, the closest Linux it has come to popularity is on smartphones. Naysayers tout Windows 8 as solely for tablets. Though one could say Linux is good for smartphones and nothing else, and they would be completely right.
If Linux users would spend more time on helping the different distros stabilize and popularize their products, perhaps even merge them into major titles, their dreams of Linux as a viable competitor to Windows and Mac would come to fruition. Until then I guess it's going to be more and more TR articles filled with Windows-hating rants by Linux users. Time suckage.
I would find it really hilarious if someone realized the Start Screen makes sense and puts it on a Linux distro. Funnier still if that distro gets installed more than any other (non-Start Screen) Linux.
