I'm sorry, but you used the word "MONOPOLY" too many times in that opening statement.

I am a beginner and will learn from people like about my mistakes. Its not an open statement.

Even Apple hasn't toppled Microsoft's grip on the OS market, so I doubt this 'react OS' will

No, it won't.

No average user will use this over a Windows OS, ever. Only users who generally know what they want from their computers will give this a go then probably spot some issues along the way when <insert name here> won't install and abandon it.

It's like using a new web browser, as soon as you find it has issues on certain sites you always visit you go back to old faithful as it WORKS without messing with settings. < key point there, Windows OS tends to work with just about everything.

Yes it might not end Microsoft's monopoly because people like you and me are so reluctant to even test another OS that there is not much room. But think of it like what if there are multiple choices for users. They will get even better for what we are experiencing now to capture market.
I am thankful for your comments and will include these comments for next post.

Best regards,

It looks like an older windows type.

Sorry, but the fight over desktop will remain, for a long time, between microsoft and apple. I'd include Google, but their os really isn't there yet.

What about all the great Linux OS's like Mint and (Gnome-based) Ubuntu? They have a far better chance of succeeding since google would probably back/modify one of those instead of building their own Linux OS from nothing.

Sure, maybe in the long-run, but nothing considerable would happen for years.
