Although linux probably can never get big enough to compete directly with Microsoft, it can still cause a major threat.

Depends on your definition of Major? Do you just mean the biggest threat, or a major threat?

what is wrong with wanting things cheap? most people don't like to pay extra for things do they? If there is a can of soda in the store, how often do you hear people say, " Man, this soda is to cheap, I wish this cost more."
I'm not complaining about the prices, I know it takes a lot of work, time, and money to make software, and other things, I'm just saying, the cheaper the better. Right?

I don't hear them saying I wish it cost more, but I will and I imagine others do say that its too cheap and go for something a little more expensive. Generally, if I have to bye it, its crap anyway. Some cheap things are good though, (eg Lidl Freeway Lemonade, 37p for 2l - very tasty!)

ya, some things are better when cheaper in price, as long as they are not cheaper in quality.

Lol, yeah.

Maybe the Software Engineer does Hardware Engineering as well - and like to put programs on his customers' computers which burn out the hardware quickly?
