Surely the answer is in the question. Linux is at the state of Windows in 1997 or 1998. So why would users go back almost a decade?

The last time I used Windows for much was in 1998. Of course, to actually get paid for my work I had to agree to work on Windows again, full-time. After a month and a half it seems to me that aside from crashing less, Windows is at the state of Windows in 1998.
