    why would one OS be better than any other in something like this? I
    don't see any reason linux couldnt do something like this.

    (please erase my ignorance)

    When people compare systems, they are usually speaking from the
    standpoint of "what can the thing do _now_" not "what could it be made
    to do".

    Linux can be made to do a lot of things, but it doesn't do them now.

    What a system can do now is what will drive most people to decide to
    use it at the moment.
