The Outdated Microsoft Worldview (Mindframe of Post-Mainframe Era): A Mindset of Windows Being Ubiquitous in the Market (and Where It Cannot be Avoided)

Summary: It's mostly incorrect to describe Windows as something that cannot be avoided in technical occupations or something that's worth learning (or actively using)

THERE is this outdated and bizarre notion that Windows is still everywhere. It's not. Windows is still rather dominant in laptops and desktops, but only laptops and desktops, plus these days those aren't even the majority of Internet-connected devices.



The above video responds to this very recent video which smacks of misinformation. As our associate puts it, "Rob Braxman's most recent video toed the Microsoft line to a certain extent. While in some way's knuckling under like that may seem "pragmatic" on the surface, it is 1) wasting your time with Microsoft junk, methods, and quirks and 2) limiting your future options by 2a) not spending time learning real methods and 2b) feeding market share to Microsoft instead of squashing it" (already happening, however not fast enough).

The associate moreover says that "Rob has to take that stance or risk having his YouTube channel banned otherwise" (many GNU/Linux channels were cautioned, suspended or banned for merely promoting Free software; some get instantly demonetised for it, based on keywords).

Long story short, there is no lawsuit, there is a just a hateful, lying idiot abusing "the system" (which this idiot rejects entirely)
