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."

""and who gets the blame? not Nvidia, not ATI, but Microsoft.""

:O clearly your new to this forum, and others I'll be willing to pull 100 quotes out for you.

""third party commercial software"" GNU has third party commercial software, Firefoz, MySQL etc

"Take inkscape, no improvement forward in months."
http://inkscape.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/inkscape/

last update 16seconds ago

"Passparout is now dead" never heard of it. although a release was out well just two months ago

"Pan" seems quite active http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/pan-devel/

"Pidgin" and yet over the last few months its released
all these versions with all these changes http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/ChangeLog

Not only are you lazy your also a liar ;)

"Apple is growing in the high double digits"

lol not even by Apples accurate figures ;)

"Vista been a failure - where? all sales figures so far, both retail and OEM have actually been pretty good!"

Erm no, thats what hardware companies are having to sack people, and even a year only 80 million is looking kinda lackluster....the good news is though revenue is at an all time high ;)

"spreading lies"

That brought a tear of joy to my eye check my references above to enjoy the irony, for every single statement I am more that willing to point out 10 articles, I expect a full apology XXX

Mate, are you really this obtuse or do you work hard at it?

""third party commercial software"" GNU has third party commercial software, Firefoz, MySQL etc


How does that answer his question about commercial software? He's talking about software like Quicken and Adobe Photoshop, and you keep banging on about Firefox and MySQL? If you walk into PC World, Fry's, Wal-mart, etc. how likely is it that boxed software that you pick up is going to run on Linux?

"Pidgin" and yet over the last few months its released
all these versions with all these changes http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/ChangeLog


ZOMG, real user names are now shown in the system log! Seriously, how does anything of what you've posted counter the points kaiwai raised? Those "changes" are barely new features. We're still waiting for Pidgin to support video and this isn't likely to happen anytime soon.

Seriously mate, take your anti-MS anti-Apple nonsense elsewhere. We're heard it all before.
