Why does Windows suck
Sunday, February 6, 2005
Ars Technica provides a sociological analysis to Mark Morford's San Francisco gate query.
Straight up, I've got an honest answer for Morford. People simply react in different ways to the technology's failings because they're ambivalent about its use. A few people get royally fed up, and move to another platform. Among enthusiasts, it's often Linux, but sometimes MacOS. In my own experience consulting, the less technical tend to bail from Windows to the Mac, but that doesn't happen all that often. Some people decide to get their Windows learn on, and make sure they steer clear of problems. But any way you slice it, the majority of the desktop using populace stays on Windows.
