    Windows is not growing much in functionality...

Windows is important as a problem as long as it is non-free and
considerable numbers of people keep using it.  It is clear that when
you say it "hardly matters" you are thinking of some other criterion.

I am not.

I am claiming that the influences which lead people to choose Windows
are waning, with or without GNU.    They are very strong, right now,
but they are as strong as they will ever get and are already starting to
diminish (with or without free software alternatives).

The battle is shifting and GNU should seek -- another chess analogy --
initiative on the new battleground.   Windows "hardly matters" because
there are now bigger fish to fry.
