    The question is not about doubts here.. Again both are just operating systems.. but we are all here if we have good working knowledge we should strive hard to fix the major problems in linux as of 2013

    Re: Why do you choose Ubuntu over Windows

    I am now actively choosing windows over ubuntu - not because I like it or because the os is better, but because I get a working kalendar and contacts sync going.

    Give me a way to do:
    - calendar
    - contacts
    - mail

    Sync (both directions!) with:
    computer
    laptop
    phone

    without
    a lot of time (really, that's my most precious commodity these days :/ )

    It's sad. Hopefully things will get better, but as it stands: there is no proper (say: easy, fast-set-up, flawless) cal/contact/sync support anywhere in ubuntu (say: linux).

    Gmail is not OS dependent. That covers mail/contacts sync to anywhere. And Thunderbird supports Google calendar via an add-on.

    You choose to buy Windows - that's your right. :) But saying there's no fast and easy way to do such basic things on Linux is just plain wrong.

    What makes people to go back to Windows rather than sticking to Ubuntu?

    Preferably i would like to fully change over to a Linux distro, the only reason holding me back (and i must say, 90% of my company), is mail....
    Everything i can do on Windows for work purposes, i can do on Linux except for MS Exchange. its been years, why has there not been any advancements in FULL Support in MS Exchange?
    Android is linux based right? Why are they able support this via active sync, but Ubuntu not?

    Personally, from our IT point of view, it is much easier to support linux based system, as we are using PXE deployments to our users (only call centers, banks, etc.), but each OS has their advantages and disadvantages.

    even if you use windows for the most part of your work, it would be e good idea to have ubuntu installed on your machine. just for the sake of knowing that there is an alternative to windows OS.
    in my case, i was pretty surprised to see that my CAD software works pretty good in wine 1.5.xx. actually, for now, i use that CAD only in ubuntu. actually, i can say that i use windows for the sake of diversity.

    @linux_one If that is your thinking I can't help it..I'm not a fan of either Linux or Windows. for your kind information..I use what works for me..and I don't want to waste time..What is your whole idea of sharing the video which is irrelevant for this discussion..It seems pretty infantile..try changing your cerebrations..

    Re: Why do you choose Ubuntu over Windows

    I like Ubuntu because:
    No virus problems.
    To install and fully takes about an hour. Windows=6-1/2+
    I don't have to restart whenever anybody within five miles sneezes.
    No virus problems.
    Excellent free support from the forum.
    Faster.
    No virus problems.
    More stable.
    I don't have to go out and buy more programs to do what I need to do, they are either free, or already included. i.e. Photoshop/Gimp
    I can change anything about my computer, such as motherboard and processor, and not have to spend a couple of hours on the phone trying to get it re-activated.
    And did I mention no virus problems? I don't have to buy software, or take a chance with the free stuff, to "protect" my computer from malicious idiots.
    And the biggest reason that got me started with Linux is....IT"S FREE!!!

    Yes it's free from a monetary point of view but for me and more importantly it's free as in freedom!! Freedom from Apple, and freedom from Microsoft, with a worldwide forum that is second to none. I LOVE Linux!!
