"Also, why use another character for something which can be done just with one?"

- Windows and network standards: 0D0A
- Linux and Unix Standards: 0A
- MacOSX: 0D
Logically, which is compatible with every systems? Only one: 0D0A.

"What I'm starting to think is that what you want is Windows with a nice core and good technologies underneath."

No, I want a free and opensource system secured to suggest a base for work in entreprise.
ReactOS is not enough safe and compatible. Nos compatible Linux to allow to use Linux softwares.

Linux is not enough user-friendly to make possible the work in entreprise.

This reality seems to be the base of GoboLinux: make the system user-friendly.

The popularity of Windows is not based on fear from other system.

It is based on habits: Poeple makes habits using PC. It tooks years, but they have.

And if you want an OS to be used, you have to adapt it on people's habits.

That's the error Microsoft did removing the Start Menu on Windows 8 => It was a magnificent failure (and Balmer was fired for that).

If you want to develop Linux, Linux has to adapt itself to people's habit, this is not people to adapt themselves to the OS.
That's a point most on Linux users don't understand.

Granted, Windows is the dominant OS today, but try to tell this same thing to a computer scientist and ,probably,what you will get is a fierish glance in the best of the cases. Indeed, the standard is not windows line-ends but Linux's one, or rather, Unix ones, as ,AFAIK, every non-Windows OS (that is, every OS except Windows and React OS) use Unix ones. Also, why use another character for something which can be done just with one?
> What I'm starting to think is that what you want is Windows with a nice core and good technologies underneath. Don't try this, it may be OK to try imitate the front-end up to some degree (yet I would love to debate this), but don't Windowsize Linux, that won't work.
> PD: If you really love Windows (something I don't know) you shoudl try React OS, it is meant to be the open-source cousin of Windows (100% with Microsoft OS).

Even if they know Linux exists they won't install it just by hearing how difficult it is, however, I think Linux still needs a lot of polish to be the desktop killer (I won't even talk about phones), so they fears may be somewhat founded after all (but that does not mean I won't try to lure them to the penguin side :) ). There's a point in my life when I start to think we should focus on improving the desktop, instead of marketing or cross-features.
