"Linux is regularly accused of being too fragmented but
Microsoft has its own minefield to navigate.
"One of the regular criticisms levelled against Linux is that
with so many versions available the platform is "fragmented". The
idea is that because there are so many "distributions" of Linux,
users will be confused and unsure of which to pick.
"Microsoft's Windows, on the other hand, is often seen as a
unified offering with no complications. Unless you really dig into
it. In which case there are not just one or two versions of Windows
(and Windows Mobile) but literally a dozen."
