    Linux specializes in command lines, editing files and GUIs just look horrible. How much time do you spend in the terminal vs GUIs? I know I've spent far too much time in the terminal these past months due I had to.
    Although, don't take that wrong as to think I think Linux sucks at everything. It doesn't. There are things I like, for instance, the whole packages system. Easy way to maintain and update software.

    GUIs look horrible ? ..or rather the ones you've used look horrible !
    (That is the point of using Linux, for me. Of the many dozens of gui environments available, I like only a few. That is just fine for me as the one I like, really works great for me.)
    My KDE 4.8.3 desktop beats any other user interface I've used (Including Windows 7 and OSX (Snow Leopard, iirc) ) in terms of elegance and beauty, in my opinion.

    If nothing suits you, it is rather simple to assemble you own GUI environment from scratch.

    1.None of the other participants are fast and steady.
    2.The fast and unsteady suddenly falls asleep while running !

    I don't program to Linux.

    It does not in my opinion, which is why I don't use it.

    I have no desire to program for Linux.

    You don't have to program for that!
    All it needs is installation of required packages and in some cases editing configuration files.

    I have no desire to do that. Give me an installer and a GUI that does it for me and I'll comply.

    I'm on iOS on some old 3gs phone. It's not jailbreaked, there are next to no cool apps installed and I like it that way. Why? Because it's my phone. It has to work. Period. Nothing more, nothing less. If I want to play with something, I use a computer that's not important. If my netbook isn't booting because I was too dense to get the BSD install right, then I just relax, put it somewhere and forget about it until I install Linux some other day. I would not tolerate my phone not working for a month because I did something stupid and neither do I want to spend a night repairing it to avoid that. So I don't touch it. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    The phone function is actually the least I use my smartphone for.

    Things I regularly use it for:
    - Youtube
    - Email
    - Text (ok fine I guess this counts as phone function)
    - Check weather
    - Read the news
    - Take pictures
    - Google Maps navigation
    - Stopwatch
    - Check bank account health
    - Calendar to remind me of meetings, etc
    - Games

    Android or IOS? Android.
    Linux or Windows? Linux.
    DirectX or OpenGL? OpenGL.

    Opensource ftw!
