If you get an impression that Linux sucks - you are largely wrong. For a limited or/and unprofessional use Linux indeed shines as a desktop OS - when you run it you can be sure that you are malware free. You can safely install and uninstall software without fearing that your system will break up. At the same time innate Windows problems (listed at the beginning of the article) are almost impossible to fix unless Microsoft starts from scratch - Linux problems are indeed approachable. What's more, Linux, unlike Windows 10, doesn't collect data on you and doesn't send it anywhere. Some points in the article need to be revised and corrected because in 2016 certain issues have either become resolved or more or less irrelevant as pointed by Justin Garrison at medium.com. Kudos to him!
Windows 10 vs. Linux
If you or your company are seriously thinking about the ramifications of installing Windows 10 and you're pretty scared of the prospects of running the OS which invades your privacy and deprives you of the control of its crucial features (for instance you cannot officially disable telemetry, windows updates, cortana or windows defender) then I guess you're asking yourself a question: what should we do?
First of all, if you're running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 you're safe at least until year 2023. I would not recommend leaving these OS'es because I'm quite sure they work just fine for you and you have almost zero issues with them, specially if you're a large company and your workstations are locked down so there's no point in migrating to something new and untested just yet.
At the same time if you're buying and deploying new workstations you might consider installing Linux. By doing so you'll be helping the open source community by increasing the userbase and possibly finding, reporting bugs and even eliminating bugs in case you have software developers in your organization. Of course, you might want to run applications which have no alternatives under Linux. In this case you have two options: you may run Windows as a virtual machine or you may try using Wine. Wine is a very powerful software which allows to run Windows applications under Linux almost at native speed.
