"Redmond, WA - A recent study funded by Microsoft shows
that Linux users can go Windows if they have enough determination.
"Linux use is not encoded in your DNA or a result of an abusive
childhood. It's a choice that people make, and we think it's a
mistake," said chief researcher Marc Switzer. "Our study shows that
with enough determination that 'mistake' can be corrected."
"...Of those who embraced the Windows lifestyle after years of
using Linux, 80% stated that "pressure from society and co-workers"
was their chief reason for switching. Others said that their Linux
use was "just experimentation", or a "mistake while they were drunk
in college." Thirty percent of the research subjects said that they
had not told their family about their Linux usage."
