Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu As if we are watching an episode of The Scary Door, Canonical's Mark Shuttleworth has praised Windows 7, and welcomed Microsoft's latest operating system into the fight. Shuttleworth made his remarks in a short interview with The Register.

IE > XP > Vista > 7

Just as IE wasn't upgraded for years because Microsoft saw no need or competition, we wouldn't see its frantic efforts to get 7 to market in order to (1) kill off XP, which drains revenue from Vista, and (2) to desperately get as far away from the whole Vista disaster as soon as possible.

But since Linux already stomps Win7 on both performance and security (on any machine you choose), there won't be a single Linux user switching to Win7, I guarantee that.
