Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Dear Ubuntu, for the last couple years life has been good. Every time I've shown you to a friend or family member, they've compared you to what they're familiar with--Windows XP or Vista, mostly--and by comparison you've looked brilliant.

First up neither OS are perfect and none will ever be.

But in my opinion Windows 7 is better than Vista but that is not saying much. I do not like 7 either as I find it still uses more resources than Ubuntu and is also slower at most things I do with Ubuntu. To me with 7, when your using it it just gets in your way of doing things all too often.

Setting up network printer gave me so much grief on 7 it was almost a joke. The same printer set-up on Lucid is the easiest I have ever seen on recent computers. I didn't have to install drivers or anything it was a simple point and click episode.

I could go on with so many things but It would simply be my opinion. I guess an OS cannot be everything for everyone and as I always say you should use what you like and what works for you.

To me at this point in time Ubuntu does what I need of it and it does it well for an excellent price and investment in time.
