Ah... so that's why there are so many rabid Mac and Windows zealots. Don't be too hard on the fanboys!


Don't get me wrong, mac guys do the same thing about the evility of apple and the overpriced hardware, and windows guys do the same thing with the whole "The operating system doesn't really matter, its all about the apps" thing.

The only reason i was talking about linux is because i was talking anecdotally.

Never used Ubuntu, but I did use Mepis when they briefly employed the Ubuntu package repositories. I agree that there can be bugs in the Ubuntu packages. However, Linux/open-source is not Ubuntu -- it is much, much, MUCH more. Try a more solid distro/project.


Regardless, ubuntu is widely considered to be one of, if not the best for desktop use.

The majority of Linux users probably don't consider Ubuntu to be the best (or one of the best) desktops, as there are one or two KDE users that might disagree.

Even Mark Shuttleworth uses KDE over Gnome: http://www.itwire.com/content/view/19456/1148/
