Linux people have been saying this since... 2003?2023 will be "The Year of the Linux Desktop"
It may be who knows, the end of support for windows 8.1 ends on 10 January and end of support for Chrome updates,Edge and browsers based on Chromium for windows 7 also end in February. Although still have windows 10 that works on most machines that have around, more many are old and when installed windows 10 turns into a nightmare.Linux people have been saying this since... 2003?
Linux is not going to be the the favourite desktop Os. period. I use Linux and I am happy with it and its not easy to keep it working without getting the quirks here and there. It demand a lot from you than that windows or mac requires. The only way Linux to break even is to introduce it to children in schools. More users means more problems gets identified and solved. The Linux community is not doing much to propagate its growth, its even more cluttered than that of android versions. Too many distros.I had the same experience, I have tried it several times, even to use it just as a desktop for my 70 years old mom, but it did not work out and linux community only shouted insults.
I am still waiting for linux to have 1% users worldwide (not including IoT/servers), predicted 20 years ago as the supposed result of the Windows demise and the evil MS account.
Thank you very much! good that you are sincere in your words, because many linux users say that is easy to migrate from windows, to some linux distro and start using that will be equal to windows. It is not always well so.Linux is not going to be the the favourite desktop Os. period.

In a virtual machine, anyone can use Linux, I want to see it used as the main OS instead of Windows.I just installed Mint Cinnamon 21.1 in my VMWare Workstation 16.2.5, easy peasy running firefox in filejail. makes many windoze "concerns" moot!
once upon a time i ran centos on the hardware for about 10 years. good old days, now it's just old_dazeIn a virtual machine, anyone can use Linux, I want to see it used as the main OS instead of Windows.
The Advantage of using Ubuntu as a linux distro is that the community is big, and if you have any problems, you can find many tutorials on the internet.I am using Ubuntu full time. Hardened of course.
