    Why? Linux is like hurd only a kernel. these times the kernel is one of the rar thinks that has no problem with the effort. Windows is a hole platform where tons of software, drivers, now how exists. A simple kontextmenue entry is not a problem on windows, on the current GNU/Linux Distributions you has first to look that file managers they use and if you can do it. As Example look at the horrible dropbox integration. even in nautlilus the integration is bad and they come with dropbox.

      Possibly because some people want or even need Windows, but don't want all the NSA spying?

        Yea, I heard that like 2 years ago, and I was surprised that I was misinformed for so many years. Anyway the real first bulb burnt out in seconds AFAIK. The point is to not look down on people with goals that are "impossible"

        And btw, Edison really did improve Swan's invention, didn't he?
        And Steve Jobs really did have quite a few innovations (but IMHO definitely NOT iPhone)
        about him being a marketing man, that's so true! I bet we all heard of the "We don't need a camera" and "Now, we have a camera" joke
