Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

Ubuntu is getting better with every release but I feel it is not there yet. Some tasks still require going to the command-line. Non-tech people should *never* have to see command-line.

Also need to improve support for off the shelf printers and scanners in a plug-n-play sort of way. I know some devices work out of the box but others need some tweaking and then there are some bad ones that do not work at all.

People are not happy when they have a hardware they spent money for and it won't work anymore.
