so why it have a much smaller market share?

after being one of sponsors of "easy" linux distributions and desktop 
environment (RedHat), microsoft now can say the truth that it's crap.

you don't have to tell me this. as all unix "desktop environments" are.
because this style of computing is limited by general.

In technical university nearest me there was (or is) a guy that when 
teaching students unix he said:

Don't use windows. Not because it crashes, not because it's buggy and not 
because it's damn slow. But because it learns bad habits, that are then 
almost impossible to get rid of.

For me the best sentence about it.
