Would you buy a Microsoft-less desktop?

| At the same time, because it's Linux-based, this do-it-all business desktop
| would also be cheaper to administer since almost all of the security risks
| from viruses and malware disappear along with Windows. Any fair comparison
| between one of these Linux desktops and its Windows equivalent will show that
| the Linux system will be cheaper to buy in the first place and to maintain.

| Now, certainly, I'm not one of those prophets who go around predicting "the
| year of Linux on the desktop". There is no such animal. That isn't how open
| source grows. Open source grows slowly, a step at a time. But inevitably.
| Once a person has seen Linux for themselves, they are cured forever of the
| FUD spread about it. One by one, household by household. And most certainly
| generation by generation.
