Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

Ubuntu is getting better with every release but I feel it is not there yet.


For me its getting worse. one release ago it stopped working on my desktop workstation, and in the latest it stopped working on my laptop in addition to still not working on my desktop.

But seriously...Ubuntu still has some rough edges that really needs to be fixed before it can take on windows.

Ubuntu has been fixing rough edges since it started - sorry, but I wouldn't trust it to finish that anytime soon. Meanwhile, other projects are trying to actually advance the state of the free desktop ;-)

What a load of crap.

Ubuntu is the FIRST Linux desktop in the last 10 years to provide a stable, usable desktop experience for the masses.

While it's still not ready for gamers, etc. It's way ahead of all the others.
