Just more Microsoft arrogance, and reminding you they can do whatever they want.

    I believe Steam has WoW, and available for Linux....not sure.
    Libre Office is what Linux has (among others, but it is what I use).... it will open any Word Document, Excel, Powerpoint etc.

    Started using Libreoffice when I upgraded to Windows 10. Was forced to, my pirated version of word 2010 quit working.

    I use whatever is on the computer provided for free with the computer. I can't afford to buy a $400 OS on top of my $1000 computer. Windows 10 was a free upgrade. Chrome is free, I use it. Everything I use is free or I wouldn't use it.

    Considering the big three in Linux are free (as are 99.9% of all Linux distros).........

    Doubtful on that meathead.
    Ever heard of Stormix ?
    Xandros ?
    Progeny ?
    I was friends with Ian---a fellow gardening freak back in the day before he got whored off to Sun.
    I was part of the development team of those.

    Ahh Sun.... another company that refused to shake the hardware habit.
    Xandros of course, Progeny no, Stormix was after my time in systems.

    Do you need that? If not, Linux is good.
