I think it's just contrarianism for the most part. Windows is successful and mainstream, easy to use and versatile. You can do almost anything on a windows computer you can do on a linux or mac computer.
Linux has a niche as a mainframe system os and in servers, and mac as a niche as a trendy fashion statement, and they arguably fill those roles better than windows does, but for any other use case windows is simply superior, even if it is "uncool".>>5946
The irony of using the Terry flag while making this post is palpable. Terry thought linux was trash that should stay relegated to running 1970 mainframe computers with 2 mb of ram, which is what it was designed for.
He's right too. Loonix is the classic example of a product that tries to be everything but ends up being nothing; a convoluted mess that technically "can" work as a desktop operating system but has so much convoluted baggage it carries around with it from the 70s that you need a reference manual and years of experience to do simple tasks that are trivial in windows, like installing software or changing file permissions.
