I and all I know uses Linux over any other operating system, including Hurd,
for technical reasons, not because it has a cooler name (and I don't know
about that) or it's fashion...

It's for being good that it is being adopted by the industry and business.

After all, Microsoft has better marketing than all Linux companies put
together, and still it hasn't been able to stop Linux's growth.
