Why more people don't use GNU/Linux: it's the apps, stupid
If one were to pose the question why don't more people use GNU/Linux, one would probably get as many answers as people who are asked the question.
Some would say this, some would say that. Often, however, people tend to forget that right from the start of the personal computer industry, just one thing has driven adoption - killer applications.
Yes, there are illegal and unfair methods used to gain market share for operating systems but, to a large extent, killer applications are what count.
