At which point people can spend hundreds of hours re-learning how to do
everything they've spend the last 12+ years learning to do with
Windows/Windows applications so they can save $150/5yrs or so by using
GNU/Linux and FOSS.  (Oh, right, most everyone buys Windows from OEM's. 
Therefore, they'll only save $20/1-2yrs or so.  Maybe even enough to
cover the cost of an SD subscription.)

***And, IMHO, it isn't even close.  (For me it is because of the "F" in
FOSS--and the fact that I can actually fix the problems I encounter. 
For non-developers, though...)
