Walmart, Dell, IBM and others have tried to sell
Linux desktops and all ave failed.
Linux was the first on the shelves for netbooks and
yet when Windows versions were released months later
the Linux versions went MIA.
Don't you kooks get it yet?
Linux is like typhoid.
Give up and use Windows or OSX like the other 98
percent of society.
Stop making asses of yourselves.
After reading the win10 preview newsgroup, it appears that a lot of people
aren't a bit happy on some design decisions that were made in regards to
win10. Some are saying that the moment is ripe for linux to get its act
together and put out a clean distro with support. The linux community also
has to support this by writing decent and well thought out apps. Last
chance for this to happen. But I'm afraid that this may be too big of a
hurdle for this to succeed.

There is a new TV series where Linux is used and directly mentioned.
Show me a TV series where Windows is touted as anything other than a
vulnerable POS not ever ready for any business to use, unless they want
to be hacked in the first week.

Windows seems to have caught on late that product placement is a good
thing (and no doubt their marketing department will try to claim that
they invented it) and have appeared in Hawaii 5-0 (in a major role as
the table top surface machine), How I met your mother, Mentalist, I
Although other than laptops the logo seems to only appear on the back of
a monitor which is not very subtle product placement.

Other than silicon Valley and Drop and Catch Fire I can't recall a

I can't even recall a specific mention of Apple either although unix
gets a mention in Jurassic Park by the young girl.
The strangest product placement I've seen was in the SyFy Channel's
'Eureka'. In several scenes the Cisco logo appears on monitors and
phones. It's not like Cisco is a household word and seeing the logo is
going to cause Charlie Couchpotato to run out and buy a Linksys router.
Only in Windows Lemming La La land is someone labeled a kook
for merely using an alternative. You would think Windows Lemmings
are all some flavor of communist or fascist for all of their
intolerance of people making their own choices.
I bought one (HP) with Windows because it was cheaper and had better specs.
Then made it useful by wiping this Windows and installing Linux.
Now six years later it is still in use as a mini media server with
Spotify and KRadio.
"Made it useful." Honestly though, I have to admit that for netbooks at
least, Linux runs a lot better than Windows. I recently renewed the life
of a co-worker's Windows netbook (which was ridiculously slow) by
installing Lubuntu on it. It caused her a couple of problems since then
(Linux is good at that) but it is still technically functional.
