Great article by Dave McKay7 Mistakes New Linux Users Make (and How to Avoid Them) ‘n I’m doing another reblog. 😉 – Thinking about trying Linux? ‘Here Be Dragons’ – *ATTENTION* Windows users!

Probably should be posting this at my Linux Newbie – since 1996 blog, but am liking this new Self-Hosted Blog so much that ‘Newbie‘ may be headed for ‘semiretirement‘ as a Linux Google search & reblogger blog. 😉

Have worked hard, for almost four years, promoting Linux at the Linux Newbie – since 1996 blog, i.e., primarily promoting it to Windows users as a Special *PURPOSE* Linuxes, a ‘Portable‘ OS, and a great ‘Secondary‘ or ‘Companion‘ OS to Windows 11 & 10 users.

However, Linux is primarily a Global Enterprise focused OS, which was valued at “USD 5200.0 million in 2021,” and “desktop” Linux (@ 2.6%) barely beats newcomer ChromeOS (@ 2.4%) at Usage share of operating systems. How popular is Linux as a “desktop” OS? I’ve had Linux posts make it to Google’s Front Page wid less than 150 views. 🙂
