Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu 10.04 Beta 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Having said so, I kept feeling Windows 7 
| would never surprise me again after a mere 
| couple hours of use. Windows offers 
| immediately its goods, but once 
| discovered, all paths beyond them seem to 
| end very quickly. In turn, Ubuntu felt 
| more like an empty canvas, offering a vast 
| amount of choices. From system 
| configuration to Look&Feel and 
| applications available, there were options 
| all over the place for the end user to 
| pick. In that sense, Ubuntu and Linux 
| don't feel immediate or still, but ever 
| changing and evolving after the user's 
| will and skills.
| Aside from its inherent flexibility, 
| Ubuntu keeps a 6 month release schedule, 
| which allows it to stay much more current 
| and fresh. While Windows 7 will remain 
| almost unchanged for a good 3-4 years, 
| Ubuntu 12.04, for instance, will likely be 
| very different to 10.04.


7 Things That Are Easier To Do In Ubuntu Than In Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| When the average computer user hears about 
| Ubuntu or Linux, the word âdifficultâ 
| comes to mind. This is understandable: 
| learning a new operating system is never 
| without its challenges, and in many ways 
| Ubuntu is far from perfect. Iâd like to 
| say that using Ubuntu is actually easier 
| and better than using Windows.
| This doesnât mean youâll experience it 
| that way if youâve used Windows for a long 
| time: at a certain your habits begin to 
| feel like conventional wisdom, and any 
| system that doesnât match your current 
| habits will seem difficult.
| [...]
| In many ways, Ubuntu is easier to use than 
| Windows. Does this mean Ubuntu is superior 
| to Windows? Of course not, and I wouldnât 
| suggest so. You should use whatever 
| operating system works best for you.



Suddenly a Vista-phonic Moment

| I dumped Vista and put Ubuntu 9.04 and later
| 9.1 on the exact same DELL with NO hardware
| changes and it has never even hiccuped once.
| It has run without ANY failures and only has
| required one reboot (outside of new kernel
| installs)in the year since I installed Ubuntu
| 9.04.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
