Linux Greg Kroah-Hartman has put the slides and a transcript to his keynote at OLS online. The title speaks volumes: "Myths, Lies, and Truths about the Linux kernel". He starts off: "I'm going to discuss the a number of different lies that people always say about the kernel and try to debunk them; go over a few truths that aren't commonly known, and discuss some myths that I hear repeated a lot."

"His rebuttal to the "linux has no drivers" myth is completely illogical. I don't care how many drivers linux has built in, I just care how many are available. I think it's pretty safe to say that Windows has more available drivers than linux."

I will try to remember that the next time I try to install Vista and it dies because it doesn't support my Promise SATA chip. Oddly, Linux supports it in x32 and x64.

Vista isn't even released yet. Not only are you trying to compare a currently released OS to one that isn't even released, you're also trying to use circumstantial evidence to support a general claim!

Please try and provide less stupid arguments next time you decide to respond to me, mmkay?
