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. Some tasks still require going to the command-line. Non-tech people should *never* have to see command-line."
To work for avg win and mac users this is true... thankfully, pretty much any hardware and system config tasks of avg users can be done with a gui in both Mandriva and Opensuse. Mandriva having the easier to use control center interface, and suse one being a little more powerful, though not as intuitive as the Mandriva one. I personally think the Mandy Control Center is better than either the Windows or Mac one. Ubuntu still has a long way to go there, though is doing better in a few areas, mainly style, community and PR.
