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. Yeah, your ugly brown color scheme was a bit off-putting at first, but once people saw how secure, simple, and reliable you were, the response was almost universally positive. But recently, things have changed ..."

yes friend you are right but seriously, windows 7 more secure than linux?

please don't say bullshit http://www.secureworks.com/research/threats/zeus/ ( watch the paragraph Windows 7/Vista Support $2000 )

UAC is a very superficial imitation of the sudoing mechanism

yes windows 7 is better than vista, but, hey, vista is plain simple shit

it is so easy to be better than vista

so what is the point of the article? ubuntu and/or linux is becoming uglier? less secure? I don't see this trend happening

Why does shit have do be benchmarked? Do you really really take a dump in a test tube and perform tests on it to prove its worth (or worthlessness)? Shit is shit. It all stinks, and it's all waste.

Joking, of course. Well, kind of. But I do agree with the original poster that Vista is shit. No need for proof, my own experiences have formed my opinion. Which is just that--an opinion. And since when did an opinion need to be proven as fact?

IMO, Vista is the biggest Windows dud since WinME. While WinME was a buggy, bloated and highly unstable POS, at least Vista is more stable, but its GUI consistency is horrible. Vista is still bloated though (which Win7 improved), and it was released with bad device compatibility (few working drivers).
