Good job sky, but you need to talk louder, or some one needs to turn the mic up.

Despite what people say....I have used both Linux and Windows extensively.  Any thing from Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, CentOS, and even Arch on the Linux side.  I have used Windows 98, XP, 7, and even Windows 8/8.1.  There are some major differences in the operating system.

While Linux if you buy the right hardware can work decently well it still lacks the some stability and polish in some small areas and some more advanced graphical areas as opposed to the Windows operating system out of the box in terms of applications and built in features.  The gap is closing with this push for more cross-platform applications, but it still has a long way to go.

Appearance does matter to the end user.  If something doesn't look right people will think it is broken. 

Comparing MS Office 2013 to LibreOffice is like compared MS Office 2013 to MS Office 2007. 

LibreOffice while it can do all the basic tasks it lacks ALOT of polish and the small features people have grown to love.

For businesses paying 300 dollars for peace of mind and knowing the other guy receiving and viewing your documents will 100% see the same thing is important.  This could be something as simple as fonts to more niche complex features like clip/vector art built into to MS Office.

That isn't to say these things couldn't be included into LibreOffice/OpenOffice but it seems no matter what LibreOffice is always playing catch up and copying features.

If LibreOffice, Gimp, Blender, and many other open source applications actually made it into the school system then we would start to see more professionals use them, but we are so far away from that.

The only hope you have is getting MS Office, Adobe Photoshop, and other closed source applications to run on Linux. 

Until these tasks are so trivial they can be automated through voice commands professionals will continue to purchase software that gives them the edge even if it is just something that is familiar and industry standard.

A tech savvy company might take the hard road and add the additional features they need that aren't provided by default, but the road to build up the lack of dependence on these companies that are paid very well to build software to be attractive to these professionals is something I don't see changing at least in the near future.

I like using Linux and it was fun to tweak on and play with, but it just at the moment has lots of weak areas and isn't a good option for most people still strongly tied to certain applications.  Wine while it works still feels clunky and broken with small things not translating through like transparency, or other small visual aspects.

If you aren't tied to these applications then I would definitely recommend a Red Hat, or Ubuntu workstation.  If you are then obviously Windows is the only choice.
 
This logo on hardware in Europe increasingly becomes symbol for the stupidity of their respective owners, purely wasting money for an over-rich company, which takes $60 for the OS and additional $300 for an Office package, that is freely available! Linux, Libre/OpenOffice!

Why are people even proud on owning this?

I've watched this dozens of times and I've raised the question far more than once. NASA is underfunded, which to my mind is nothing short of a crime against humanity. As you all could probably imagine, I am not American but that does not bother me. I think this is not the most significant agency the US has, I think it is by far the most significant structure alongside CERN. What I've said a million and one times that I, not being American, would love to donate to NASA so they can carry on researching. I am willing to give away my sleeping time and help with software development and engineering without wanting anything in return. And I am far from being the only one. A penny? Are you kidding me? Here's a dollar. No, here's 5, wait-there's 10... 20... 50... From me, from the guy across the street, from the guy sitting next to me on the train... Why is no one taking action?
