... pretty much forced you to use Windows X in terms of OS choice in the past, ...
Wut? Is Windows X supposed to be Windows 10? Or is this some special meaning?
Anyway, as to the article I just want to say, well, that's great, hopefully more people discover free software.
I think in many parts of the world users don't really have a choice about selecting the software they need for their work. They are indoctrinated from very young to use closed sourced tools that run on Windows and that's it. Even if theoretically you can use an open source tool and save money to the company, many bosses don't care about that, and they want to continue using one software or the other, just because they are familiar with it. Some shops would rather get some pirated copies of SolidWorks for basic 3D models, instead of doing the equivalent with FreeCAD.
