Windows "I do not consider Windows ready for the desktop. I found it difficult to use, buggy and lacking in security. I also found technical support lacking. While Windows captured a significant portion of the desktop market, the product is clearly not a good fit for consumers who do not understand the risks associated with logging on to the Internet. The costs of providing aftermarket products can run higher than the price paid for the hardware."

... and Linux is?

These articles are really starting to get old. I mean, logic dictates to not upgrade from a 16-32bit crossover "OS" to a full fledged 32bit OS. XP has its quirks but it is a stable OS and it's obviously ready for the desktop. I, myself, use Windows 2000 Pro and have done so for the past 4 years. I've never had software or hardware issues, other than the obvious MS-DOS games. As for Linux, well, 6 years into trying it out I still get hardware issues for hardware that really should be supported by the OS. Things as common as a Radeon video card, a Sound Blaster Audigy and, not a piece of hardware but, the FAT32 filesystem. Other than that, when and if I get the OS running, it's an alright system. These articles are really just to get to people, I'm sure the guy's sitting there giggling at the 100+ comments spewed out for this non-sensicle article alone. I mean, for God's sake, the database went down. It went from 7 comments to 80 within a matter of 2-5 minutes, not to mention the people just checking. That's just my two cents.
