View Full Version : Anyone want to help add Ubuntu to X vs. XP?

March 12th, 2006, 12:06 AM
There's a website that compares Mac OS X to Windows XP. It has screenshots and a lot of text narrative description of features.

Some people want to add Ubuntu to the "shootout." You can read about it here (http://www.xvsxp.com/forums/index.php?act=ST&f=27&t=6383&st=0).

If anyone's interested in contributing, just sign up for those forums and post your willingness to help out.

Do you love making screenshots and/or writing blurbs? That's the real question.

It's kind of comparing a DAF with Ferraris :D

WTF is a DAF?

Is X vs. XP really the best place to try and have an objective comparison?
We might as well start our own we-cant-concede-that-anything-could-beat-Ubuntu-on-the-whole-so-heres-a-comparison-website-to-reinforce-our-own-viewpoint.net

I don't really see what the point of naysaying is.
If you don't want to contribute, don't.

It's not my intent to seem hyper-negative. However, I do question the value of comparing Ubuntu to WinXP & Mac OSX in a place that doesn't seem to value a completely even-handed comparison. That's all.

You're right. X vs. XP definitely has a Mac OS X slant to it, and no matter Ubuntu's merits, the site's owner will ensure that OS X somehow ends up on top.
