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."

Imho, the only people that bash linux are the ones that tried it years ago before user friendly distros such as Ubunt & OpenSUSE came out with user-friendly package management (Synaptic, Yum) & GUI's for *most* configuration tasks.

Vista is just not up to it, Ive been running vista since the summer and will be un-installing it soon, it just hasn't lived up to its (microsoft generated ;) ) hype... Driver support is bad etc still one year on from the RTM version. I was going to hold out for SP1 but ive decided to go back to XP as SP3 will be released soon... I wish now i'd never switched from XP in the first place... If it aint broke dont fix it..!

I went to vista with a level head even after hearing all the bad press it got, I realise now its been a bad choice and MS will seriously need to re-think its strategy and possibly release Windows 7 earlier than it thought.
