Hi, i am new to Ubuntu and Linux and have been reading up on it when i discovered this article http://www.tuxradar.com/content/benchmarked-ubuntu-vs-vista-vs-windows-7 . I was just wondering if its rubbish? I have a Compaq desktop PC that has only 512mb Ram and a celeron D 3.3ghz CPU with a bashing from 3 years of Vista and i thought the PC was junk and about to throw it out and update to a much fancier setup when i tried Ubuntu! and wow its fast install and about 60 second startup to a usable desktop has made me doubt this article. Also the fact that Ubuntu installs Gimp, open office and many great programs.

We seriously need a benchmark program like Vista/7's becnhmark program that rates our hardware in parts as well as an overall score.
