Why would anyone want a Windows/Linux OS when they could use a GNU/Linux OS. According to wiki Microsoft has yet to announce a license for Azure Sphere.

I know a dude with the baby duck syndrome. He's stuck with Windows UI (thinks it's the best ever, which is obviously false) and tons of cracked software. Do you really think people don't use expensive software they don't even need?

An argument that I have often heard from other people: If the Linux were like Windows/macOS (look and feel) I would use it.
Only then Linux would no longer be Linux. IMHO

There was this good old article explaining why Linux can't (and certainly will not) be like Windows. I still wonder though, how come people don't even understand that different things are meant to be different. If they want opensource Windows, try convincing them to use ReactOS. It's the exact thing that they want.
