Again, your logic is flawed.
Microsoft has had a monopoly in this market for well over 15 years now and it's notoriously hard for 'any' OS to get a foot hold. Just to prove this, let's take Linux as an example.
Linux is successful in various markets like, Server, Netbook, small devices, super computers. Microsoft got split a part in the 90's(During the Clinton years) because of their monopolistic tactics. Today yet again, Microsoft are being fined because of this and their refusal to be more open and let competing software compete. Their technologies are incompatible with other OS's and their network protocols just don't allow other OS's to interpolate with it.
Despite the bull**** many Windows elitists say about Linux, it's not because "Linux is hard to use" and "Linux is not ready for the desktop" junk statements. It's because Microsoft have a monopoly on the market, pure and simple fact.
