Windows An Economist.com editorial examines the OS lay of the land on the eve of Vista's release, and makes an interesting case for why Windows "rules the world". Do you agree? We report, you decide.

I've installed ubuntu for my sister (senior highschool) an tutored her (briefly) through the weekend, and she just loves it! That made me realise that Windows is the most widely used OS today not because it is the best, the most stable/easy to use/etc. True, almost all latest games are written only on win32, but that may change. The real problem is that average user Joe knows ONLY about Windows, it doesn't know about Ubuntu/SuSE/Fedora and the kind. Linux is just not popular enough, that's the real problem, that's why mister ballmer can sell windows for how much???? 900 dollars, even MORE??? no, you get reversi, ms paint and solitaire for 99$ ;) you get the ideea ;)
