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."

Hmm, you're right about this...
Maybe I just needed apps that were available on Windows by chance? Please don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely not saying that it is impossible to find a case where it's hard to find a freeware Windows programm for a certain task (there's tons of adware/shareware mostly).
But what I'm saying is that for the stuff _I_ do it was always easier to find a Win app than one for Linux.

Btw. I didn't desperately try to find the programm all the time, I was just reading a book - before you laugh your a** off ;)

My main point is that I simply don't feel the need to use apps that I don't even know of. If an app is somehow relevant to me I have usually seen it on a couple of websites... and I'm really pissed if all I see is for Win Xp/2000/ since I don't run Windows anymore...
For most things (except visual FPGA programming) I found programs nevertheless but it took me considerably longer...
