    As my fellow C4SS commentator Tom Knapp puts it, the era of paying for operating systems is now officially over.

    That’s absurd. it would be nice if true, but as long as Microsoft and Apple exist, it won’t be. Google’s OS is Linux with a new GUI to compete with Gnome/KDE and the others. Linux is not currently capable of handling all hardware equally well. Most Broadcom devices don’t work. Many wireless devices don’t, and the state of the Linux sound system is dreadful. It’s unlikely regular folks will get into it in the near future. Maybe 5 years from now the situation will be different. Until then, proprietary operating systems will own a stranglehold on the home computer market.
