I think the market share of MSO has nothing to do with the users being idiots or not. The 90% share
is caused by 3 things
1 - When you buy a PC you often get the MSO already pre-installed
2 - Not many people know about alternatives. I only learned about OO and LO from my brother who is a
IT wizard. While talking to people about me utilization of LO I am always experiecing that almost
all people do not know about OO or LO or other packages.
3 - Many IT departments in companies choose MSO because it is easily available and they consider the
support as good. Keep in mind that introduction of an alternative suit requires a lot of testing in
an IT department. The suit must be stable and keep productivity high.
If my above statements are wrong, then I am happy because I converted from MSO to LO, thus from an
idiot to something else...
