Yes but the amazing fact is that still MS owns the market to a much
level, that is for sure their marketing despite of the fact that Linux
is good in all aspects, isn't it?

Take a look at their history, including how they used forced bundling,
extortion, much higher prices for non-exclusive use etc. to force market
share.  Windows is generally not sold to end users.  It comes with most
computers, denying consumers the right to say no.  Micros~1 has various
means to coerce computer manufacturers to use Windows to the exclusion of
others.  They have lost in court on this a few times, yet they keep on doing
it.

But still it seems amazing!
