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."

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.


You are a bit confused there, buddy. You have got it the wrong way around.

Ubuntu works with far more "off the shelf printers and scanners in a plug-n-play sort of way" than Vista does.

If you have an older printer or scanner, and you plug it in to your new Vista box, it is quite likely Vista won't recognise it and that the drivers that came on the CD with your printer or scanner are XP drivers that won't work with Vista.
