    Re: What can Windows do that Linux can't?

    I would say gaming but there is PlayOnLinux and Wine, I mean of course, I don't think it's worth it because from my school I am allowed a certain number of copies of Win7

    for you know

    working...with

    I don't say gaming though, because it's not exactly a turnoff, generally my answer to this question is

    "everything short of running the proprietary software only available for Windows."
    It felt like judgment, but it was only rain.

    As far as gaming goes, I could completely stand to get rid of windows entirely and go to strictly Ubuntu, there are enough games that work with Linux to keep my occupied (though I'm not a huge gamer). The only things that keeps my dual booting is the ability to watch Netflix. I don't have cable or even network TV so all of my TV watching comes from Netflix. Give me a way to watch Netflix flawlessly on Linux and it's goodbye windows!

    The Windows desktop doesn't have an identity crisis.

    Windows:

    1. Run Adobe Products.
    2. Run many Games.
    3. Most of the Phones and other peripherals comes with Windows software are compatible.
    4. Run Standard Messengers from Yahoo, MSN, Google, SKYPE (latest version) etc..
    5. Lots of other softwares.

    This list is not complete....


    Ubuntu (Linux):

    Though alternatives exist for the above its not in par...

    Always have to spend time in figuring out workarounds on how to get things done in Ubuntu.

    Re: What can Windows do that Linux can't?

    Just got an email from Barns and Noble about a ebook I bought. After downloading it I tried to run it in FBReader, no luck so I email them and this is what they wrote back:
    Unfortunately, at this time, NOOK Books purchased on our website are not
    compatible with FBReader on your Linux laptop. Please check our website
    often as we are continuing to expand our download capabilities to other
    devices. At this time, our NOOK Apps support downloads to your NOOK,
    NOOK Color, iPad, PC, iPhone, Android phone,HTC HD2, MAC and Blackberry.
    This is true, I can get it to work on my Android "Pandigital Nova", but not in Linux using FBReader. To be honest, it will not work with Adobe Digital Editions under Windows either.
