        Because the World is not Black and White. I like GNU/Linux, but not as a Desktop Environment.

          Because people have jobs and use other computers than their own.

            "they"!?

            My primary OS is Windows, and that's where I spend my time developing software, but I subscribe to Phoronix because a lot of what it covers is non-specific to Linux.

            Many of the articles are about cross-platform open source projects where the benefits will be seen on Windows and Mac OS as well. There's also a lot about hardware, and while the benchmarks tend to be specific to Linux, there's often something interesting.

            I do use Linux - just not for web browsing.

              Example -
              right now, I am at office where I spent most of my life time; on a Windows PC to develop Java Apps.
              though at home I have a Mac Laptop and a SteamOS PC.

                  This. I am forced to use office. We have Debian stable here - sadly without wine, without capability installing anything...
                  Personally i can't understand why people cry Linux has cons as Desktop. KDE is on par with Windows. No, Doplhin is much more powerful, everything is much more customizable and .... i don't understand it.

                    Well, for example, there are some PCs in which you cannot change the OS even if you wanted to... (e.g. workplace)
