Linux users stand on higher moral ground, and the encouragement of en masse
migration to Linux is beneficial to the whole society. Not only will the technology be of better quality, cheaper and available to more people, but even the proprietary software developers will eventually make a move to the Linux platform. Also more applications will be developed for the open source OS, because of the growing need. With each passing year, digital technology is increasingly affecting our lives. Making a wrong decision in this regard, can be very costly later. Philosophically speaking, moving to Linux is a responsible moral decision and a right cause to join on many levels.
Linux already dominates everywhere else, from mobile phones and tablets (Android), super computers (over 97%), web servers, data centres, digital TV screens, watches, cars, refrigerators, world's stock exchanges, satellites etc. The take-over of the personal computer platform is next. Perhaps, at the end of this list, we should complete the full circle and return to the very first reason (privacy and security), and ask ourselves that essential question - is it still true that 'an Englishman's home is his castle'? And what can we do about it?
