I subscribe to what Linus said at Debconf 14 (the video is on
the "competition" on the desktop is decided by pre-installs.
I both agree and disagree. For some uses, there are softwares for which
I know no alternatives on a system or another one.
Examples: AutoCAD => windows, ease of maintenance => Debian, Fedora
(but, not Linux!) and maybe some BSD.
Plus, there is also the history: everyone knows what Windows looks
like, even if they do not knows what is Windows.
So, things are a little more complicated than the current pre-install
thing. Also, there was an effort for netbooks several years ago, on
which Linux distros were installed.
So, I both agree and disagree :)
