I love Vista, looking forward to 7 and certainly see why MS would do this...
This is astoundingly bad... astoundingly bad!!!! And untrue (as you point out). AND.. those questions... totally bogus. If anything I think the Linux updates are easier and generally go smoother than Windows.
Unbuntu is almost as good as Vista in my eyes. I'd say it is better if ATI drivers were easy to install (please don't start on this, I'll try one of the installers soon when I'm not lazy). It actually runs BOINC applications 30% faster than Vista for me..
And I'd say the average web-surfing customer they see, there would be no indistinguishable difference between using the 2 OS's. Minus the drastic cost difference. This is only exaggerated when you add in that Open Office is free too, so that saves the "average" consumer quite a bit too if they were looking to buy it for school and planning to use Office.
