You are mistaken sir. It is not really about replacing microsoft. Its
about making the users free, free to choose and not just be stuck with
the one thing that is slammed upon you. Linux (and off course Fedora)
is about letting the user decide what to use. More over "UNIX was
costly" Linux is not. Its free and one software can work on all
distros. So there is really no question of failing.
