It would cost them MORE to make drivers or software for Windows than for something open-source, so the profit argument is pointless. Licensing... The open-source spirit kind of pisses me off a little. Every time someone shows off something open source or Linux-related it involves like 5 minutes of tinkering in a shell and then some physical device doing something simple...or, you get my drift. It's not impressive just because it is free and open. Not everyone wants to be a computer programmer just to make their computer do what they want to. Who made Linux? Some Eurpoean. They have no regard for anything that anyone wants to do. They create something for their own personal purpose and thinks everyone should adapt their way of thinking to what they've created. Windows is not lazy, just different. Windows 7 has been the best so far, and I've had ZERO problems with it. One name to throw out there that embodies the loser image...Richard Stallman. No hygiene, no life, uses some dumb little laptop with wget to not leave a footprint? What a loser. I prefer to not spend all of my life on the computer. To spend one's life on the computer to get it to do what you want is the exact embodiment of the lazy attitude, by not having a life.
