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."

installing software...

I must say I liked the article but this one is just plain silly.
I NEVER ever had to look for an app longer than, say 5 minutes on Windows (including the time to check if I could trust it - forums, homepage of authors, sometimes wiki and the like).
I mean how do you know you want to install a programm when you don't know it? If you know it finding the homepage is a matter of seconds.

Installing is a completely different piece of cake, cause I really hate clicking "Ok" over and over again. Plus you sometimes don't even know what you are saying ok to because it just becomes second nature - and that's dangerous!
This is one case where I like the linux way better although I already managed to screw my system using apt - don't ask me how, all I know is I tried to apt-get some random app and when I came back all my apps were gone ;)
