Why Isn't Everyone Using Linux?[edit | edit source]

This is a lesson part of the module The Web Economy out of the Open Source ERP/Executive Diploma course conducted by a private university.

Topics[edit | edit source]

  • Even though Linux is free and MS Windows is not, we still find a minority having Linux on their desktops.
  • Main reasons seems to be the comfortable culture from using MS for a longer time and the lack of expertise handling Linux[1].

Discussion[edit | edit source]

  • Research the statistics and trends of Linux vs MS usage around the world and in your particular country.
  • Are there training centres or institutions promoting Linux around your place?
  • Can you master Linux enough to have it on your own PC?
  • What do you think are the real reasons why people are not switching from MS Office to OpenOffice?
