Windows "Microsoft has reached an enormous success with its Windows product during the last decade and practically monopolized the market for home computer operating systems. But, does it mean Windows is still the best OS around, especially for power users? I'm going to cumulate my Windows XP frustrations and tell you about the top 10 reasons why I decided to dump Windows and use GNU/Linux as my primary desktop OS."

It's not about linux

First thing: it's about Gnome, KDE, etc. vs Windows XP default Explorer (some people don't know that there is alternative for Explorer, like LiteStep). Many people are talking about Gnome and KDE and think they are talking about Linux. Linux is just a kernel, you can install KDE and Gnome on Solaris and *BSD. Virtual desktop is feature of WM (not Linux) and can be installed in Windows. Applets can be also installed in Windows, as separated apps, so you don't have to choose between KDE and Gnome, which one has better applets.

And next thing: 'Avoid all so called “security patches”', don't install SP2, yeah ;) . Try Linux distro from 2001 and count all bugs which where fixed during 2001 and 2006. This article is lame.
