For that matter the Mac OS X is *nix based
Each OS has it's place. But the world is trending away from windows on the mobile. Windows is a hog, with way too much that never should have been in the kernel. In mobile devices power consumption is key and *nix devices are way ahead in that as well as being leaner.

Irrelevant. Can you run Linux apps, unchanged, on your cell phone?

Which doesn't make it Linux, either.

So what? I don't care for Windows but I really have no choice. That was the whole point! <sheesh>

I haven't been following this whole thread, so whatever your point was, was missed.
Linux is not the Linux of even a few years ago.
Linux desktop and driver support has gotten quite good. It installs easier than windows and can run Open Office, which is arguably a great, and free competitor to Office. Open Office reads all MS types. I have on occasion used it to open a new MS file type that my 2007 Office didn't like. Applications, not apps, install easily and seamlessly over the internet.
Ports of various Linux distros are available for many devices that run Android. It some cases this can be as simple as booting from a memory card.
You can even run a version of Linux, and the Applications, on a $30 device like the Raspberry Pi.
And, you can even run Linux on your Windows desktop as a program. Just a download, click, and install, and run it out of Windows.
So, perhaps not on *your* phone. But possible on your tablet. If it has the roots of a Linux kernel, the device can most likely run a Linux distro easily. Note that the MS Surface RT is not Windows.
You probably have no need to run Linux, but the foundation it has laid is powering most of mobile, most of the internet, and has possibilities that Windows just can't do.
Sheesh indeed.

Of course. There are none so blind as a true believer.

Also completely irrelevant.

Clearly you can neither read nor think.

Yes. See:

Makes it a heck of a lot closer than Windows.

Unless you're talking about an employer forcing you to use Windows at work, you've got lots of choices. Several flavors of Linux, OS X, at least two flavors of Unix, and probably one or two oddballs I've forgotten.
BTW, Linux Mint was designed specifically for Windows users, not computer nerds. Try it for free.
There is one caveat on Linux. I have not yet found a free CAD for Linux that I like. And I don't need one often enough to spring for one of the commercial ones. So on the rare occasion that I need CAD, I reboot into XP (with networking disabled) and run TurboCad. If my use increases one of these days I'll get it running under Wine or VirtualBox so I don't have to reboot.

Nah, it's just another religion. The true believers must evangelize whenever anyone says anything that even tangentially refers to their true calling. They can't even read, only evangelize.
