Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y LXer compares Ubuntu, Mac OSX, and Windows XP. "All three desktop operating systems have admirable qualities. Each has some weaknesses. Attending a recent User Group Fair, I had another chance to see them at work. Having used and programmed on each platform provides some unbiased insights."

why run non-native under WINE?

How about the fact that I dont have to worry about spyware and virii stealing my tax information while I am filing? Or reporting my account numbers to some thug in Russia? Of course, not all of us have $900 to shell out for photoshop. Gimp does 90% if not more for free. And whats wrong with pdf suuport? Works just fine on every version of linux I have used without having to download it ffrom Adobe. BTW there is a free version from Adobe for linux, so you cant say much about it. And yes, I am biased toward linux. But if you are going to be a ms fanboy, at least pick some things Windows is actually better at.
