Making many good Linux distros available for everyone or normal users is good socialistic form
Careful there. You just scared an unknown number of American Mint users into re-installing Windows...

Is it a warning, pick your gun and follow me :D

You misunderstood me, I meant free distros, and my general talking supports Linux as an example for essential part of computer that became free or many distros as I know, I suppose that there are distro with money. If I found Linux OS not good I won't support it or explained some points around it, I must study the subject and experience it before I tell my opinion about it, the legal way to get Windows is to buy it and it was my next point to discuss. I didn't mention Windows in my previous post and in the same time I'm against the way to be like an enemy for a product of a company, I analyse products according to my limited experience, I tell what good and bad points I think, in the same time we can't force people to install OS we like, you can tell people what good an OS offers, you attract people, not force people, remember that.

I guess capitalistic way with any OS will increase the curve of its piracy, the morality of users will come low, so user will have no problem to get illegal copy of the OS, the same will be for software particularly essential and special ones, socialistic way is more appropriate, for example Linux, it's not only for security attributes of the OS, it's also for the availability of OS, there's no need for piracy here and morality curve of users come high, it's not necessary for a user to search for illegal copies for a software or OS, but in Windows case as an example the piracy is high, the morality of users will come low, for example a net cafe small project in Egypt, net cafe that a normal citizen will make it won't be like ideal one like in USA for example, traditional net cafe in Egypt with limited abilities and normal users used for WEB navigating and playing computer games, you've to buy legal copy of Windows for every PC, you've to do the same with games, the cost of these software for normal citizen want to open a project will be so high, piracy can work in case like this, the law too will work and can destroy the whole small project at all, it's an unbalanced situation.

I can imagine another scenario with Mint for net cafe in Egypt for normal citizen with limited abilities, for navigating there will no big difference between Mint and Windows, the normal user will deal with the browser, so if the user in fact is a Windows user, he will found no problem to navigate under Mint, Mint have too libre office, pdf reader and can download codecs for videos, before that the manager of the small net cafe need only to experience some with Mint and to know how to prepare Mint to work fine with PCs that are gathered with different components, they don't have trade names like DELL for example, he need to know how to make back up and some of troubleshooting.

Games are the next important point specially for kids, he needs some good free games if he so limited in his financial abilities, he needs games kids like it to be in Mint, things like GTA and Conquer, people liked 'em here, for bad luck I didn't hear someone bought GTA legally here, it's the pirated copies, but if we wan to fix the situation, and after that law will have no way to convict small net cafe that uses 100% OS like Mint and games that were bought with good prices legally.
