Is Windows Still Relevant?

Published January 29, 2011 - 5 Comments

I’ve been Microsoft Windows-free in my house for almost 3 months now, and I can’t say that I’ve really missed it at all!  My main machine is the iMac in the office.  For my portable computing needs, the Dell Inspiron that I loaded with Ubuntu works amazingly well.  I’m not a Linux geek, but they’ve pretty much brought it to the point where you can install Linux and not even realize that it’s not Windows.  You can also argue that my third computer is the iPhone, and I don’t think you’d be wrong.  It’s a very capable replacement for my laptop when I’m on the go.

So if I’ve managed to break away from the Microsoft Windows trap, and feel no particular need to ever go back… it begs the question that many have asked before me.  Is Windows still relevant?  

I used to think so… now, I’m not so sure…
