    I saw only one of the other threads on this, and I'm amazed after
    reading the linked page.
    My basic scanner and Samsung laser printer are not supported with
    Windows 7 (and were a breeze to install in Linux). Microsoft's own Age
    Of Empires II does not work on Windows 7. The only reason I've logged
    into Windows in a long time is to run the folding@home GPU client.
    Since I gave my video card to my mother when hers died, I haven't had
    a reason to log into Windows 7 at all. (The onboard GPU can't fold.)
    Like many others, I could go on, but it's kind of pointless.

    Actually it's pretty spot on. What's funny is all the threads on various Linux sites with people commenting about it trying desperately to convince themselves and others that it isn't.
    The box said "Requires Windows 95, NT, or better", so I installed Linux.

    Seriously? Windows Live applications' non-compatibility is a point against Linux?

    So if people said; "The reason Windows is rubbish is because it doesn't come with grub", you wouldn't think they were being a teensy bit dissembling?

    Admittedly, I haven't seen the source material, but if they're actually claiming that "free updates" or "enhanced security" are pluses for Windows, they've drunk the kool-aid.

    Have you?

    [In fact, this link seems to have the original slides. No professional support available. How is that, in any way shape or form, true?

    Yes, the lobbying and lies are pretty spot on... why are you using Linux again if all MS says is true?

    I don't have to convince myself that Linux beats the cr@p out of Windows in a lot of areas. I have first-hand experience with that

    How many people who shop for computers at BestBuy are likely to have any interest in Linux in the first place? Does BestBuy even sell computers with Linux installed?
