There is no stopping it, unless there is a revolution.
I never said Windows will fail. I said Windows 10 would be.
Their direct competition
is and will forever be their previous Operating Systems.
By the time Windows 10 comes out, who knows, Linux may actually have a distro that tons of Windows users could enjoy. The revolution would likely be game compatibility on Linux. As soon as Linux supports more games, I know a bunch of people would make the jump towards that instead of learning how to use Microsoft's next Operating System.
I've already tried a few Linux distros and I decided against learning it at the moment, because what I like to do is play games in my free time and a lot of them didn't have official support for Linux, or they simply didn't work. If and whenever that issue is completely solved, I'll probably give it another try.
