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 had 2. Ran Vista from the day it RTM'd 'til the day Windows 7 hit RC2. Had exactly one hitch early on, which was McAfee silently (and only partially) blocking NVidia driver installation-- I had two different NVidia drivers at the same time.
