I also like how i can mount my windows hard drive and get anything i want to. it's great how the add/remove programs part actually lets you add programs and not just remove them like in wondows, i can do pretty much anything i want in ubuntu now except game, so i think i'll run it on my laptop.
Or just use VLC.. no codecs.

I cant get nvidia drivers installed for my 8800M GTS. Ive tried envy, ive tried going through the terminal. Nothing. Because of the lack of drivers i cant turn on graphical effects or use Compiz fusion!!!

Also, for some reason Ubuntus feeling a little bloated for me.

I feel like I need to throw my 2bits in on this.
I've loved linux for awhile, but something has just made me
move over almost completely.

I recently built an entire second machine to devote to
Linux. My first one is wholly for running games. And with
this new one I'm planning on using StreamMyGame to VPN
into my gaming box, thus never having to actually use windows
full time.

OK. Now for my second bit:
MULTITASKING in Linux is incomparable to other OS's. Right now,
I have no less than 7 x264 encoding sessions running on the same box with
integrated graphics. Best part? NO SLOW DOWN WHATSOEVER!

Opening up firefox, running any other app... They all just act as if theres
no load on the box at all, even though both cores are running at 100%.
And running 7 simultaneous encoding tasks.

I've crashed Windows and OSX doing less (although OSX was harder),
but Ubuntu 8.04 keeps on chugging. It's all like:

To put it as simply as possible, the same kinds of things that make Windows 2003 Server and Windows XP different. I believe that the server versions of Ubuntu have longer-term support, as well.

Plenty. The packages (installed software) are very different, and by default server does not have a GUI.
