Apple, Windows, Linux… who really cares?

Yeah, the video is silly and probably NSFW. However, as my colleague Kate writes in her post with this video:

“Many people in the IT industry don’t realise that operating systems are not important to ordinary folks. We don’t want to be bothered with things that live under the surface of our devices.

This is one of the reasons Apple has made such inroads in recent years, they abstract the complexity away from users so nicely. It is also why Linux is starting to get a bit more traction, they’ve finally realised most people don’t want to fiddle with a command line to install things.”

I wrote something similar myself.
