Which it isn't.

You could argue that it is marginally better for most things, but on the whole I call BS. Windows isn't as bad as you all seem to think it is.

And here we go.....


I'll add a bit in

both have their advantages

malacious attempts are aimed at the masses linux would have security problems if it was more popular than windows

linux is for developers no nice GUI for the normal people

Windows will rob you of your money

Smarter people generally use Linux and the "click the mouse" people use windows.

Generalizations like that are why Linux has so many fanboys in the first place.

I do 90% of my work in "click the mouse" Windows, and I laugh at the idea that smarter people supposedly more often use Linux.

Well i personally know 2 very smart people in life who will only use a linux. Then you have myself and some select friends who think that windows is great if you properly configure it. I think these are generally true. And these are all the popular arguements people will generally make on both sides in a flame war.

Themes are already attempting to Copy Vista but what people don't relise is that it is not about Vista's new theme it is about improved security, stability, and productivity.
