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."

The problem with the crappy approach is that with 150+ installed applications you have a terrible hard and boring job maintaining all these programs, and making sure they are up-to-date. Many of the applications are filled with security holes and you won't know that unless you keep visiting these sites or near-daily basis.

And when you have to update the applications you have to double-click and click click click click for each package. That'll soon annoy you.

Linux suffers from lack of decentralized installation frameworks and Windows (and OS X) suffers from lack of centralized package management.
