Windows ITWire: "Linux users can, at times, be the worst kind of ingrates, whining and complaining about what they perceive as missing features in a free operating system. My advice to all such whingers: spend 10 days using the latest version of Windows and you'll realise that you are living in a world of relative bliss."

Right-clicking on a menu item to remove has nothing to do with consistency. It would be nice to be able to do that, but of some obscure reason we can't. Just like we cannot easily change the visual appearance in Windows besides a few pre-defined (by Microsoft) options.

Your screenshots prove nothing. You took standard look of Ubuntu and compared with Vista. You can easily find themes for Gnome or KDE utilizing Compiz that beats the Vista look.

Just like Clearlooks beats the kIdZ-hAd-FuN look of XP.

Tell me how to use my own visual styles with XP without violating the MS EULA. Oops.. one can't. Boohoo.
