Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Dear Ubuntu, for the last couple years life has been good. Every time I've shown you to a friend or family member, they've compared you to what they're familiar with--Windows XP or Vista, mostly--and by comparison you've looked brilliant.

I feel there has been alot of critizism lately towards OSNews and I just want to say that even though I personally can sound harsh I still appreciate all the time you and the rest of OSNews spend to bring us these articles.

Even though this article wasnt one of the better ones this normally isnt the case. It was a good try, it didnt work, lets leave it there. I rather read crappy articles than nothing at all.

Feel free to thank OSNews for their great work. I think they need to here it from time to time.

The premise of this article is that Windows 7 is a perfect OS for everyone and therefore Ubuntu doesn't matter.

I personally find that a little ridiculous.

No, the premise is that Windows 7 isn’t Windows XP, so what reasons do people have to remove that and put on Ubuntu? He’s acknowledging that Ubuntu’s competition has become tougher than it once was before.
