"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."
