You may want to consider the "IMHO" preface.  Linux *is* my desktop
system and it does what *I* need it to do.  Are there areas that need
improvement?  Yes, and that will always be the case for any OS.  So, I
have no doubt that for some MS makes more sense.

About the only thing I use my MS system for is to scan documents and
convert them to PDF.  Either I don't do that often enough to figure a
once step process on Linux or I'm too lazy.

Sometimes I think it is too bad I live in Taiwan and my parents live in
the US.  Otherwise I would have turned them on to Linux quite some time
ago.  It would have avoided a recent occurrence where my mom's MS OS got
so hosed and their frustration level got so high that their solution was
to go out and buy her another PC.
