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."

"Non-tech people should *never* have to see command-line. "

Nor should they have to use regedit, or know things like sysoc.inf to remove stuff like windows messenger from their desktops, but they need to.

No, installing MORE software to tweak their computers isn't right either because it requires knowing basic troubleshooting which they shouldn't have to know either.

Wait, to use Windows they DO need to know that.

If they don't they pay service fees to folks that do.

No matter what the OS is there is always a need to get under the hood. To discredit an OS for providing flexibility is silly.
