    I had to in prep particular course material horrible requirement of independent sources of information. It came quite shocking how few of the books were truly independent once you were forced to look at author histories when selecting books on MS Office. I would not have known was not required todo that.

      Casuals don't need Windows and can get away with using Android/Apple tablets & Chromebooks.
      I agree.

      False. Gamers don't feel like installing compatibility layers just to get their games working on Linux. They'd rather just use Windows (plus it often comes pre-installed in their computers).

      Do they really feel like setting up a VM just for 2 applications?

      Partially true. Sadly, I think native programs deliver more functionality than their web counterparts.

      False. Hardcore video/graphics software not available under Linux:
      - Photoshop
      - Many video editors out there (there are some exceptions such as Nuke, DaVinci Resolve and Lightworks but they're pro-grade software)

      The alternatives aren't enough.

        Luckily there is no setup involved with Proton..., yeah, I know quite a bit require workarounds and stuff under the launch options and other games require custom TKG Proton or Wine builds.

        Do they really feel like setting up another PC for just two applications?

        Also, numbers twenty-five and under should be written out. Putting down just the number is grammatically incorrect. You'll have fun with that little tidbit of information.

        Yeah, but some of those actually work under Linux or have community clones that work or are in an alpha/beta state which puts this partially in the VM/Other PC discussion.
