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."

worse than Vista, and there is no better desktop operating system than XP.

With XP everything just works. (Even DX10 video cards - they just work fine under DX9) Under Vista most older devices and programs do not work or do not work properly.

So this is unfair comparison, at least until there are XP in shops to buy.

Ubuntu is ... just Linux. If I have to choose just between Ubuntu and Vista I would choose Ubuntu. But if I have to choose between XP, Vista and Ubuntu I would like to buy XP and install Ubuntu as second OS in dual boot as free bonus - as I did in my two PCs at home.

Ubuntu alone is not enough, especially if you are PC gamer. Wine is good, but not for Windows games. Simpler things like 40Tude Dialog (there is no better usenet reader in both Linux and Windows ecosystem IMHO) run under wine adequately already.
