Linux Yes boys and girls, it's Net Applications time. Sure, their figures are flawed, and sure, they're misused all over the non-scientifically educated media, but that doesn't mean they do not indicate trends. One of those trends was a slowly rising popularity of Linux, which hit 0.93% market share in August 2008, only to sink back again during the following months. Well, it's April May 2009 now, and Linux has finally crossed the 1% market share line!

Windows XP was released almost 9 years ago and the least one is entitled to expect is that it is now fixed almost properly. I say "almost", because, after my experience with XP_32, I'd rather go back to DOS than use it again. That's just my opinion, of course.

I got a couple of BSODS on Windows Server 2003 SP1 on a Pentium D940 based computer. I think that's much worse than getting them on XP.

One last consideration: even VIA has now gone the 64 bit way. XP is really dead and it's pointless to compare it to any recent release of Linux.

Ever tried XP 64 bit professional?

Works very nice. Not all apps are compatible, but a lot of them just work...

Although I prefer Linux, I like to see the comments a bit balanced...
