Windows And so the smartphonification of the general purpose computer continues. This time around, though, it might actually be for the better. Microsoft has detailed two new features in Windows 8: refreshing and resetting your computer. Reinstalls will be a thing of the past.

Yet Linux bakes it into the user experience. To the extent people aren't updating Linux servers. An update can kill you wireless or video still.

TBH While WinXP was prone to breaking itself (it needed care), Windows Vista and 7 really don't have any problems.

Yes you have to make sure you aren't running every update manager under the planet, and everything is not starting on boot but this is the same for MacOSX and Linux as well
