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."

First off, how the hell did you get to 0.02 average cyclops? I find your comments recently have been a lot more reasonable, and less "zealotous" recently (I know how much you hate that word ;) )

But more on topic, from what I understand ACPI is a disaster of a spec. Basically, people implement it enough to get it working with windows, and stop there. Considering how well it works in linux, I can only imagine the massive amount of effort that OSS developers have put into working around bad implementations.
