Why, Oh Why Do People Still Buy Software?

Posted: 8 February, 2014 in Comment, Computer, Open Source

What still amazes me is that people still insist on buying software from the major software suppliers, including Microsoft, regardless of the fact in recent year the quality of Open Source Software has improved with lead and bounds and in the majority of cases it quality is far better than that produced by the major software suppliers.

I still understand why people buy the more specialist software as Open Source Software will never replace this type of software and I suspect they do not want to other than produce the tools to create such software.

But with more mundane and run of the mill software which include Word Processors why do people still pay for good money when a free and very usable Open Source versions are available?
