    The only change implied by going back to the office is that your access is direct instead of remote through VPN, but the use of Windows is not impacted (from what I've seen).
    but it's the reason, a lot of people with free time in pandemic used the linux pc at home, backing at office means not using that, only using smartphones to see the emails or social networks over the day

    Might depend on the firm. We don't do that. We just use the corporate VPN on our own machines, and only use a corporate laptop if you claim your home machine isn't powerful enough and you need a better machine. Most software developers find a corporate laptop less powerful than their home desktops however.

    They probably do think it's wonderful. I have to imagine there is a really big overlap between "People who run Linux", "People who game", and "People who buy games." I know that I've bought more games in the past three years than I have in the past 10 thanks to Valve, Proton , Philip Rebohle, Joshua Ashton, and many others. I feel more confident taking that gamble that my game will work on Linux now than I ever have which encourages me to buy more games.

    But that is not with every product the case and it has to show if it will be right in our case.
    So mayby linux achived already flated part of this curve ???

    On https://netmarketshare.com/ 10 years ago linux had 0.75%. Now have 1.75%. It's look totally bad.

    "I would expect even higher numbers like 5-10% if we could see only home users but not limited to the small minority of gamers."

    maybe at once 66.6%?? Why not.
