That's what I like about him.
As for Linux, MS has been copying features from it for years in every new MS OS. So if you think you are on the cutting edge on MS products, you are fooling yourself.
Windoes 8 is truthfully more like lipstick on a pig than a design shift. Why does it require 41 GB of space?
The design shift you are talking about perhaps is the unified desktop that MS is presenting across devices. This design shift was first implemented by Ubuntu in the form of the Unity Desktop, yeah, on that last decade old technolgy.
I use both MS and Linux daily and quite simply, Linux is the better OS on any number of fronts. I will give you this, MS is pretty. So if pretty windows is what floats your boat then by all means, go with Windows.
