Linux Is Becoming the Windows Alternative Microsoft Never Wanted
While many believe that Windows was, is, and will continue to be the preferred choice on the desktop, the most recent market share statistics show that Microsoft’s operating system is slowly but surely losing ground in the PC world.
And while Apple’s macOS is still considered a solid but expensive (from a hardware perspective) alternative to Windows, 2020 is gradually turning out to be the year of Linux.
Linux has long been described as a rival to Windows, only that its adoption has more or less stagnated at a level that allowed Microsoft to always be sure that its desktop domination would survive in the long term.
In other words, the Linux install base, especially in the consumer market, has never improved at a pace that would have threatened Windows’ leading position in the operating system market.
And now everything’s changing, as Linux keeps growing and growing, and nothing seems to stop it from reaching new adoption records in the coming months.
