I'm pretty sure you're VERY wrong about that. Proportionally, windows has a lot more closed source software, but MOST open source (userland) software works on Windows. In fact, I've encountered several open source projects that are explicitly linux incompatible.Windows is hundred times bigger than Linux. Yet Linux have more free software than Windows.
Why is this?
If Linux were to have greater proprietary influence with more proprietary software, then the result may be less free software.
Yes but WHY do you want that? Maxthon is free to use, just not open source. If the product is free to use, why do you personally care if it's open source? I understand the idea of having an entirely free OS (maybe you can't afford for paid alternatives) but what I don't get is why you demand open source when I'm sure you have never edited a single line of code from a well known program.The free software is the part of Linux that appeals to me.
I can run an operating system and everything can be free open source software. That is very appealing to me.
If Linux wasn't free software, or the Linux software eco system wasn't so strongly centered and focused around free software, then I probably wouldn't use Linux.
I don't know what universe you've been living in but linux is one of the most popular server OSes for almost the opposite of what you said. Corporations use linux, not because it's free but because linux is more stable, more secure, and less buggy than Windows. Linux audio is generally pretty good, the only thing I personally hate about it is configuring .asoundrc files, but pulseaudio is a way around that. As a PC platform, linux is still overall superior to Windows (as an OS), it just depends on how you have it set up and what hardware you decide to use.The great thing about Linux is free software.
Technically Windows is a superior operating system. It is more much stable, crashes less often, everything just works, you don't have audio glitches, the graphics performance is better, there is much less bugs and regressions, etc.
