    You are fooling yourself, those news media people are writing articles for people like you to read. No, really and seriously. Check out many articles and you will see that articles are specifically designed to be read by people who believe in what they read. I am not saying there is no such trend, personally I know that at the end Windows will never lose to any other os, unless through laws people make Microsoft stop innovating. Maybe in that case, Linux and others have a chance. But, before that, Windows may come for free, but Linux will never ever going to replace Windows. Again, what you hear is partially made-up, exaggarated or totally distorted. One would assume to be online people to be much more clever, but apparently most people are stupid no matter what technical skills they have.

    Linux has allready broken into Microsoft’s market share and this will only continue. Anyone with common sense can see Linux has numerous advantages over Windows.
