    The battle for your desktop

    Information Week posted an article on a desktop battle between Ubuntu and Microsoft.
    Is Linux finally ready to take on Windows as a desktop OS? We tried out both Vista and Ubuntu on individual PCs to see which works better. Here’s who won.
    The articles covers the installations, hardware and PnP support, software installation and networking, word processing, multimedia and image management, as well as backing up and restoring. Overall a fair shake of the Ubuntu versus Microsoft battle with an outcome that is very respectful.
    Ubuntu’s best strength is handling the ordinary task-based day-to-day stuff. Vista has a level of completeness and polish that some people find it hard to do without.
    To read the complete review, take a look at the Ubuntu Linux Vs. Windows Vista: The Battle For Your Desktop.

    Re: The battle for your desktop

    I read this article and I thought it was pretty well-done.

    One "theme" that was missing was Ubuntu vs. XP. Why does this matter? Well, lots of people out there anxious to "upgrade" from XP. Some of them may have the choice to go from XP to Vista, all of them have the choice of Ubuntu.
    C'est ma façon de parler.
