Why would anyone want to use linux other than for networking? There is literally no benefit for normies to use it.
Most normies just read emails, fuck around in facebook, listen to music and stream their stupid series/movies, etc.
All of those things you can do them on GNU/Linux just fine, in fact, most normies only use Windows because it came preinstalled on their shitty laptop/prebuilt machine.
Because no OS really runs on them, it's impossible to even browse the web with them anymore, the keyboard is garbage and they cost too much to produce relative to what people are ready to shell out for them.
When messing around with Puppy Linux in a VM that was limited to one core from my quad core 2.2 Ghz AMD Phenom processor and only half of the cycles for that core (effectively 1.1 Ghz) and 1 GB of RAM, everything was actually surprisingly usable when using Firefox with all the addons I'd normally have and actually ran better than web browsing on my phone from my Droid Razr M, it didn't even reload pages every time I switched tabs. I had to limit the VM to 512 MB of RAM before it started performing similarly to my phone for regular browsing.
This, I'm already doing all of those in Linux.
Some people might have bad experiences with Linux because they have unsupported hardware and everything is buggy because of that. Others don't have any problems and they can't see why everyone aren't just switching to Linux since it's so nice. Hardware manufacturers should give Linux drivers to their products and everything would be great.

But muh Windows apps

But muh default install

It's free and relatively stable as long as you do not dick around with anything. I switched to it after reformatting and being told by Microsoft that I needed to buy another license for their shitty basic OS.

It doesn't become filled with viruses and malware and an ever growing list of shit starting up with and crippling the system.
Ever look at a normie's computer?
Lightweight distros run blazing fast even on garbage hardware such as old prebuilts and netbooks.
Yeah. The correct term is "normalfags" or "normalfaggots", "normies" reeks of reddit.
