Linux is great as long as there is at least one person around that knows how to tinker with it and make it work. But... then so is Windows! That is why I have a job. Even the glorious wonderful Windows needs a tech around (me) to make all the things that should just work but don't just work work! So, why is this something to get so friggen worked up about? I don't see the big advantage to Linux right now, but I don't see the big advantage to Windows either. Just because Windows is on 20856789214529.36794790870% of all PCs in the discovered universe, doesn't mean it is better, it just means it is on 20856789214529.36794790870% of all PCs in the discovered universe.
BTW, Bill in marketing is a tool, but even with admin privileges not given and UAC turned on, programs and malware still install in the local profile. So, once again, what's the difference?
P.S. Studies have shown that 89.73% of all statistics are made up!
