Linux I volunteer as tech support for a small organization. For years we relied on Ubuntu on our desktops, but the users didn't like it when Ubuntu switched to the Unity interface. This article tells about our search for a replacement and why we decided on Xfce running atop Linux Mint.

I like the words "stable" and "bloat" handed around that mean absolutely nothing. Lots of people at the time said Windows 98 SE was stable and lean.

9x series wasn't as bad as you make out. Yeah Windows 2000 was more stable, but almost nothing worked with it. You talk about gaming, most games didn't work ... not the fault of the OS, but don't talk about it like it was some magical OS.
