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 experiencing 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...

If MSO is a 90% market leader all its users cannot be complete idiots.
