Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I'm not saying that Linux OSes suck, i fact i used to have Ubuntu and Windows 7 as dual boot, i think it's pretty good, but what this guy is saying is bullshit.
Install Ubuntu natively on its own disk partition (as you would Windows) and then it doesn't have to go through an extra layer of filesystem (ntfs) as it does when installed via wubi.
Comments about how easy Ubuntu is too install never seem to mention how horrendous Windows is to install
Install Kubuntu instead of Ubuntu, and the comments about the "drag screen to top to maximise" are no longer valid, the media player (Amarok and SMPlayer or VLC) and about the photo editor (digikam) now would favour Kubuntu rather than Windows 7 apps.
It is exceedingly easy (just use Kubuntu, really, and avoid wubi) to make all their negative comments about the Linux desktop no longer apply.
Kubuntu beats Windows 7 handily.
Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuure, on what universe?
2) W7 6 on entertaiment?????, the guy that did this must be on drugs, 0,00001% of the games that run on Windows run on Linux, and ubuntu got a 8?????. Just for that this whole thing lost all validity.
I'm not saying the Ubuntu/Linux in general is shit, it's good, it's free, it's open source, but it just doesn't compare to Windows in most scenarios. People can keep on denying it, but it won't true. I used Ubuntu, so i'm based on my own experience.
They are low quality products . Microsoft owns the market share it does because business-wise, they entered a growing market at the right time, with the right sort of software that your average business needs. The operating system and software didn't have to work perfectly. It just has to work most of the time. That is good enough for most businesses ( and government ). It became so widely adopted early on that to change now becomes a matter of better the devil you know than the devil you don't in the eyes of many budget reviews. You don't have to make great software to be good at business.
: you've just convince me, GREAT argumentation!!!. : "right software" for me means giving people what they want, which is good, and if they sucked, why everybody used them?. : so, everybody bought their software, i imagine that they bought it because it sucks!!!. Maybe next time you should think before you post, or at least justify your opinion, "because i say so" is not valid.
