It's unfortunately true, that most issues with Windows machines are
caused by the users and not by Windows. I help many people with their
computer issues, it would be easier for me, if they would use Linux, but
they would be completely overchallenged with Linux. What we don't like
on Windows for the most parts, is well-considered and tailored for a
special target group. We aren't the target group of Microsoft. Keep in
mind that what's normal for you and me, is way beyond the knowledge of
even well educated, smart people who don't care about how computers
work.

Regarding to music applications, take a look at forums for musicians.
Less of the million musicians are professional musicians or audio
engineers. They ask for "Southnorth", "Auto-Detune" and how they can get
their music as "silent" as professional CDs are. They ask for such apps
and make fun about Linux, because they consider Linux as unusable
without "Southnorth", "Auto-Detune" etc., if they would be aware about
real issues, e.g. that the printer from the supermarket can't be used on
Linux, they would make more jokes about Linux. They've got completely
other needs than we do have.

You don't use a sandwich toaster to cook a wok dish. I know a guy who
through his apple computer equipment in rage out of the window. Today
he's using Windows, he still has got issues with using computers, but
the newer the Windows is, the easier he can use his computer. Windows is
customer-oriented, it fit very good to it's target group. Btw. he's a
professional musician and never ever would use a computer with what OS
ever for music.

We can't compare oranges and bananas.

Ralf
