Bugs & Viruses Tests at Microsoft's Linux lab show that counting the raw number of security updates required by the various operating system flavors is not as meaningful as examining the efficiency of the update process.

"And nor can most Linux distributions. Hell, some can't even play MP3s out of the box. "

Since you started the 'out of the box' topic, let me add to it...

Out of the box

Linux can help you surf safely, Windows can't!

Linux can help you make presentations, documents, spreadsheets, Windows can't!

Linux can connect you to IRC, Yahoo Chat, ICQ, Jabber, Gadu- Gadu, Windows can't Linux!

And, I am just talking about Ubuntu Linux which comes with the bare minimum of software. Not even reached Fedora/SUSE with their tons of software!

So by the time, you install the above, I would have installed w32codecs around 5 times ;) )

Got the point?

And stop whining about the mp3 support everytime when you are probably aware why it hasn't been included till now!

Edit: I missed out one - OOTB, Windows can fetch you a virus in 15 mins?, Linux can't ;) (
