Well Hello there!

Yup, Linux should be the second choice after a windows OS version
--then again, we don't exist on any specific platform, no volume OEM contracts: nothing we can do about, business at work
    But PC shipments are down 14%
    --looks like many users are going to some PDA style device: smartphone, tablets and so on

Being old style, I don't like being hunched over a small screen, no matter how portable it may be; so I will always be using a desktop (PC) with a big screen
    --I also don't particularly like widescreen, except for movies: I still large prefer square LCD/LED (or oled) monitors, and don't mind widescreen bars top/bottom when playing a movie..

Welcome to the Mint family forums

although the linux family of operating systems is not as popular as the big 2 on desktops across the world there are many government departments and educational establishments only use one or other Linux systems, and not forgetting that Android, on phones and tablets is also has a Linux core

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.
