That being said, Windows, MacOS, *BSD, Solaris and all others are not yet
perfect for desktop use either. But at least Linux supports more devices
out of the box without any additional installation or configuration than
Windows does.
That is simply not true! Most hardware manufacturers produce drivers for Windows first and then for MacOS. The major problem with Linux on the desktop has been the lack of drivers for a multitude of popular devices!

People struggle to get their devices to work with Linux. Only the more knowledgeable users pass this barrier. In the absence of immediate results, the others put Linux aside.

This, of course, does not detract from the many qualities that characterize Linux, freedom being on top. But you have to be faithful to truth!
