Windows is a big fat w***e. Linux is still the young bride. You need to commit. Average Joe likes the big fat w***es. Hell yes, average Joe is a corporate d**k. Marketing is the heaven for Joe. He can see himself as a superman behind his crapwin7. With 10000 warnings pop-up, 100 Gib daily security updates, all of a sudden, his life as a meaning. He really is in control.

The problem with linux is that there's way too many distros out there and the average user becomes overwhelmed. Also Linux, gui type BSD, etc. (in most cases) don't have the support that windows does. I installed PCBSD about 5 months ago and my highly popular Atheros wifi card wasn't supported... I find linux great for all the options it give you as an admin and a programmer but for everyday use -- which is what most people use computers for, Windows is king. Plus win7 isn't pretty darn good.

Microsoft / Bill - was lucky and timing was right. Of course that led to domination. I don't know of any other company that could release a flawed product year after year...and charge for it... and get away with it. The consumer allowed Micosoft to happen. Ubuntu is ready for most households that need to surf, email and write a doc*ment. It's time for the consumer to support Linux and send a clear message to bad service providers like Microsoft.As support for Linux grows, so will the development of drivers, software and the general availability of support techs.

Technically, PCBSD is BSD, not linux. FreeBSD(base of PCBSD) doesn't support much stuff, unlike linux.

No, windows is not the best thing that happened to the world, but microsoft is. Windows is the only flaw in microsoft, which led to other bigger flaws. Linux can pwn windows if canonical start making commercials for it. Have you guys ever seen a single commercial for Linux?

Linux is good for coders. Not for ordinary people, because most of the applications are installed using codes, which ordinary peple can't do; they expect double click and install. so choice of OS is as per requirements.

IMNSHO Microsoft; I steal I improve and sell I accuse customers of stealing and make them prove otherwise every day. If you cannot prove otherwise then you must buy another and prove you did every day. I stop support and force you to buy another and prove you did every day. I guess it might be easy for some to understand this line of thinking at least until they replace a component and are denied access to there data because of piracy paranoia from the wealthy giant Microsoft. If this happens to you, I hope you can still read the key numbers on that sticker. I could not and microsoft expressed their sorrow for my loss and offered to sell me another OS of my choice at my favorite reseller. I had a second computer MB failure and the key would not work on the replacement and the result was the same. It's no wonder Microsoft customers HATE Microsoft whether they admit it or not.

the difference between windows and linux is like the difference between brocolli and candy, except this brocolli keeps on getting tastier and still stays a healthy vegetable. Windows on the other hand tastes good at the beginning and then turns into a rotten pile of crap which is both bad for your computer and has a bunch of diseases (viruses).

Linux is awesome. The only reason I can think of that you could say windows is better is because it has more support from companies. It was the first gui centered OS to spread and grew rapidly because of it. Because it's so big, companies support it. It's not that linux doesn't support your hardware, because windows doesn't either. It's that your hardware manufacturer doesn't support linux. For everyday normal use, internet, word processing, video/audio editing/recording/viewing/listening, linux does NOT fall short of windows. Any office software for windows, there is an equivalent, or greater for linux. just 1 example. microsoft office vs open office. even on a windows machine, i'll get open office Many linux distros have a gui installer for software (package manager, etc), which by the way, has a list of programs that you can install at the click of a button, you don't even have to surf the web to try and find programs, they are listed for you. If you need to install something from a website instead of just a list of programs, they usually have the command-line command... it's a matter of copy + paste. If linux had more support, then that might even get easier. In terms of games, ya... those companies don't create linux friendly versions. So it's hard and takes some tweaking to get those windows games to work on linux. If game developers started supporting linux (and some are just starting to dabble in it) then windows would have nothing on linux. I don't care who you are, right now at this point in time, you have to admit that linux has better Operating Systems. But Linux does have support from more companies. If everyone wasn't such pansies, and we could get those companies to support linux, no one would really have a reason to stick with windows.

@Curtis Barker - 16 February 2010 at 1:21 pm I find your comment offensive as I don't hate Windows or Microsoft. @James - 12 March 2010 at 11:44 am; jonny - 15 June 2010 at 8:35 am The only reason Linux is 'better' than Windows is because its free. As for the virus part. Many people who make viruses tend to want to infect as many people as possible. Windows has more users then Linux. End of debate. BTW, I just wanted to say this. Just because a company is big doesn't make it evil/bad. It is mainly paranoia on your part. How ever there are companies that do go bad, but Microsoft has yet to join their ranks.

Linux Rocks all the way in South Africa too... Windoze sucks steaming mounds of dog piles. As an ex-corporate wannabe exec... I've had MS and their licencing issues for sub-standard software up the wazoo. MS sucks. Plain and Simple. I now run my own business, employ 50 people, have NO MS issues and am completely happy. I am saving 120K + (zar) a year that now goes into my pocket as profits. F#@K william and his crappy BLOATWARE. Sure it looks nice but so what. It's dofg slow, bloated, hack city crap. Now... I don't care what Linux the guys use. Most are on Ubuntu (nice and easy - click, click, click - just like MS), Some more tech on Slackware, some on RH, I'm on Debian and so are my servers - just because they're a**ly retentive about the update and upgrade path. Try getting a package into Debian sometime. ;-) Running my deb server (only on STABLE release versions - sid and lenny) for 4 years in the wild - NO VIRUS, NO successful DdOS, NO HACKFESTS, NO ROOTKITS, NO PROBLEM. I probably employ the laziest sysadmin in the world. LINUX kicks a*s!!! And eats MSBloatware for breakfast. To all you utter NOOBS still on MICR-CRAP get a real OS.

all this linux fanboy, i have a question for you. What exactly do you do with your linux? I believe the only thing wrong with windows is not being open, I want you all to remeber that Windows saved us from the Big companies (oracle, Ibm, Digital, Novel, etc) can u guess how much Novell was selling their crap Netware network os in the 80s and early 90s and also premium computing was only available on mainframe that required specialized hardware, do you remember silicon graphics systems. Now because they can compete thay are hidding behind open source linux. Am a computer administrator and i can say the maintenance required for both windows and linux server are similar and remeber a novice can configure a windows server. However linux sucks as an end user desktop os. If you are a normal person with a normal life and have to be productive right away without ha*sles then windows/Mac desktop os is the way but if you love to get your hand dirty and dont just like things to work and aling with everybody then you can go the linux desktop route.

I'm a pro in windows for nearly 15+ years,when I looked at Linux those days it was not at all friendly, it was a time my laptop became slower and keep on hanging & throwing hell a lot of issues and finally my laptop crashed - i had no other option, got to try Linux, I browsed the best Linux option as somebody said too many distros confused me ... I bought 4 distros and I tried ,and found UBUNTU is the best....Initially I hated command line installation for tar.gz, there were some easy package managers .deb = .exe , I found that command line is more reliable , so I need to learn few commands....... My final verdict is - thats the last day I worked with Windows , I have a dual boot - only for games purpose I choose Windows with hatred....If you never tried Linux - its the time to discover & invent!! - Do not regret as I did.

imzdone WTF? Windows saved us? Have you a single, possible, fact to back up that M$ BS? Seriously. IBM made the PC possible, by making the platform OPEN (i.e. they allowed other companies to create copies without license). Microsoft has a long history of aggressively suppressing innovation and manipulating anyone/anything/any process to get money. We would have had 32 bit GUI OS's as the norm when Microsoft was just coming out with Windows 3.1, had they "played fair" with IBM (who was too caught up with claims of monopoly behavior claims it was subsequently vindicated of; unlike Microsoft who has been found guilty of several civil and criminal laws of the US and EU). I wasn't aware Novell was ever the threat to the American/European way of life (I don't know other cultures well enough to comment on how being subject to the whim of a tyrant fit within your value system). I am sure that Novell got the best price for their software they could. They did so without undermining the free trade, or crus*ing innovation by using their market share to influence other vendors to act contrary to their customers' interests. You are correct, however, thirty years ago people didn't have the save option to powerful computers they do now. There was a point when people had to actually walk to their bank to get money (or ride in a coach / on horse back if they had the means). That has nothing to do with the mediocre (when compared to Linux w/ KDE or GNOME, Mac/OS) OS that is Win7. I am sorry that the free, open source community has given you choices. It sounds like you are the sort who hates to think critically, do some research and take responsibility for your decisions. As to your question: I use my Linux PC to: Surf the web, watch videos, watch DVDs, listen to music, watch videos of my kids from our camcorder, edit videos, do photo editing, run Windows software, do complex bio-medical research and standards development work, read/write/edit M$ Office doc*ments with LibreOffice, access my work (M$ Windows based) VPN, play video games, run Virtual Machines, do clinical research a**lysis, manage my 300+ eBook collection (which I read on an Android device or my Kindle), and otherwise get work done, and do other things I enjoy. Even my kids think KDE is better than Win7 in terms of ease of use, etc. When I have to use Win7 (work) it is like stepping back a few years. Having a novice configure a server, esp. Windows, sounds like a profoundly stupid and pointless idea. If I told you my dog can use GNOME to surf the web, it would make about as much sense. Oh, wait, I forgot, she can also configure a server (openSUSE, at least) since my desktop OS can also work as a server OS, and it came set up with secure defaults and a much easier to use (than Windows, for certain) mechanism to load services and configure firewall. Have you ever even tried openSUSE or Ubuntu (which is getting to be fairly close to openSUSE in terms of ease of use and flexibility, but still lacks openSUSE's polish, repository content, and choices of UIs) What I don't do with Linux: remove viruses, worry about security, shop for (often hard-to-install) software (I click a box which my OS downloads from the repo, configures, and installs for me)? I have installed Win7, XP, 2K, etc. and none of them were as easy, or quick, to install as openSUSE is. Hopefully, Win7 doesn't become the reboot-reboot-reboot nightmare that XP was. Oh, I don't reboot. Forgot about that. Maybe once a quarter to update the kernel, but never, never, never for a software install. What sort of crap is that? I just installed some software on my work PC (pain in the a*s that was, I had to find a DVD drive, find the Win7 update, and then reboot). The world isn't just. This is why Microsoft maintains a lock on vendors. I asked Lenovo if I could buy a laptop without Windows. They said 'NO'. They have a contract, with Microsoft, that prohibits them from selling their product without Windows reinstalled. Call that choice? The fact that Linux is taking off like crazy on netbooks, cell phones, tablets, as well as an ever growing install base on desktops and servers. Check a non-Microsoft survey of what people in the world actually use. And yes, it does tend to be more savvy computer users, people with greater intelligence, and with more education. I don't see that as a downside. Same is true of people who drive BMW, which doesn't mean it is a worse car than a KIA, or whatever you happen drive. If someone was to try and sell openSUSE pre-installed on decent hardware, backed by advertising, it would sell well. CNET did a large survey of "normal" computer users: When the group was given a chance to demo KDE 4 v. Windows 7, most (85%) preferred KDE 4, in spite of all being "Windows users". They said wacky things like "easier to use", "more modern", "more productive". Wow.

linux not enough compatibility with important programs windows (xp only)works very well if you disable a lot of things
On 14 May 2012 at 4:05 am BreakTheWindows said:
hypocracy's comment is quite right. You can use Wine to install Windows apps in Linux but some apps don't work that well or don't work at all. And as he said, you can improve the performance of Windows by disabling a lot of background processes that you don't need but you have to be really careful not to disable important system processes. I've already spent a great deal of time tweaking my Windows XP to make it usable and now it starts up fast, runs fast, and has fewer errors. The only things that I couldn't do anything about is the Windows Explorer bug (when you open the Start Menu or a folder or a drive, Windows would suddenly hang too long and sometimes would hang forever that you have to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and log out from there then log in again) and some really strong viruses that can pa*s through the best anti-virus programs and damage your files and your OS and in the worst case can even prevent your OS to start. Those two things made me look for something else and thank God I found Linux where I just spent some time finding the best 'distro' for me and now that I found it, I won't ever come back to Windows. I regret the time I wasted tweaking Windows where in Linux everything works well out of the box (if you chose the right 'distro' for your needs) and no maintenance needed so you can focus on your job and get things done. The only disadvantage I see in Linux is the incompatibility of some Windows programs (usually new and complex programs) in Linux. But then again if you wait enough those programs might work on newer versions of Wine. But that issue doesn't apply to me as I now only use native Linux apps (mostly free and open-source). Break the windows and let the penguin fly! ;)
