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."

Mate, are you really this obtuse or do you work hard at it?

""third party commercial software"" GNU has third party commercial software, Firefoz, MySQL etc


How does that answer his question about commercial software? He's talking about software like Quicken and Adobe Photoshop, and you keep banging on about Firefox and MySQL? If you walk into PC World, Fry's, Wal-mart, etc. how likely is it that boxed software that you pick up is going to run on Linux?

"Pidgin" and yet over the last few months its released
all these versions with all these changes http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/ChangeLog


ZOMG, real user names are now shown in the system log! Seriously, how does anything of what you've posted counter the points kaiwai raised? Those "changes" are barely new features. We're still waiting for Pidgin to support video and this isn't likely to happen anytime soon.

Seriously mate, take your anti-MS anti-Apple nonsense elsewhere. We're heard it all before.
