The number 1 reason why I don't use linux

This one is obvious enough. There is no easy way to run Windows programs. Setting up screen configurations is simple enough but when it comes to good old regular desktop software, linux sucks. I'm sure everyone will argue that Open Office is just as good as Microsoft Office and so on for other similar programs, but really they are not. I have tried using programs that supposedly run Windows programs but for someone who has a hard time setting up screen configurations... good luck. There's also the people who just say dual boot windows and linux or run windows in a virtual machine but if I wanted to do that then whats the point in even having linux? Until there is a time that I can run my favorite programs, I am sticking with the OS they were made for... Windows <3
