"Prefers" may or may not be true.  Here's the "rocks/sucks" metric,
from google, pages in English and French (my settings):

"windows rocks": 4740
"windows sucks": 67200
"linux rocks": 54300
"linux sucks": 55800
"debian rocks": 4490
"debian sucks": 1190

So Windows fares worst, by far.  Linux is about even, though with
positive hits that greatly outnumber Windows'.  Debian is,
interestingly, about as popular as Windows, without having accumulated
nearly the animosity.
