GNOME is like Mac OS X! Am I the only one who thinks this? So many parts of Nautilus and other parts of GNOME are similar... The Windows shell is quite different to GNOME, at least, I think so.

I like Ubuntu a whole lot, but, this article is just beyond the joke. It makes outrageous claims such as Windows being really slow and Ubuntu being much, much faster. Now, I'd love this to be the case but Nautilus and many GNOME apps aren't exactly lightweight and ultra-fast...

I vote for a 24-hour ban on Ubuntu articles ;)

"Is this a new day in computing? That might be a slight exaggeration, but I hope not."

Yes, you are exaggerating. We are a long way from Ubuntu being the best desktop operating system ever. I use it every day and I choose not to use Windows - but I still acknowledge that Windows has advantages and it's not all black and white.
