      My desktop is Ubuntu at home, and my servers are Debian. I like them a lot. I also keep a Windows 7, but that's because one (just one) application that I need does not support Linux. Here at work, it's Windows 10.

      The main reason users stick with Windows is due to the software availability. If Linux gets better in it (I hope it will) then people will start switching to Linux.

      Actually it's the software that needs to support Linux. One of my applications refuses to make their application available to the Linux OS because it would cost them too much and not enough users have asked for a version that works on Linux to be developed. Unfortunately, it's software that I use once a year, and even if I log into their site to use the web-based application, it still does not run on Linux. Their are other applications similar that will run on Linux, but the differences are big enough that I can't use all my data on them.
