People Demand Control Of Their PCs

“a humiliating backdown after a goodly number of business users told Microsoft just where it can shove its shortened support offerings, because they’ll buy PCs when it suits them and not when Microsoft forces them to do so.”

Take that M$! You can no longer dictate to the world what folks will do with the hardware they own. That applied to me more than a decade ago. Now even businesses are standing up to you and complaining. You know everyone has an option to your software. That’s why you are embracing FLOSS on every opportunity and why you backed down when you threaten to cut off support. Threatening customers only works for a monopoly, which you no longer have.

I recommend businesses and others check out Debian GNU/Linux the operating system for those who want to control their PCs.

    Hmmmm, the VERY same thing would be said about Microsft vs Linux.

    “Linux is a tiny organization. Microsoft is huge and with a long history, ~50K developers, hundreds of data-centers, and millions of packages.”

    But, we do not see you proffering them?

    Actually Linux Mint is far friendly to use for new people, then Debian and when you visit Distrowatch, it beats out both Ubuntu and Debian.

    I don’t believe that’s true. Linux Mint is a tiny organization. Debian is huge and with a long history, ~1K developers, hundreds of mirrors, and tens of thousands of packages.

    The url that you show for Debian Linux, can be confusing to new people. You should have this url instead: https://www.debian.org/

    Why not mention Linux Mint, as it is vastly more popular then Ubuntu or Debian.
