you can run a system like ubuntu and use a gui ( ie a mouse)
its like windows and the easiest to use for a windows person
Agreed, windows has its moments, but so does linux. Compiz fusion cant be beat though!!! :thefinger No way windows can pull this off efficiently: www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4Fbk52Mk1wThis is sort of like comparing a motorcycle to a bicycle. Each is good for their different uses. Windows is still a good gaming Operating System but Any POSIX system is looking very rosy for nearly any business environment, with rare exceptions.
I like Linux more, and people saying that products on Windows that don't work on Linux, they don't know how to use something called an "emulator" such as Wine or Virtual Box.
First part true, "usually cost less" never. Cause a Linux tech is hard to find so they demand a premium.Linux Servers are also better and easier to use then Windows servers, and they usually cost less.
lol come on stop it, lets think logically. When you run some thing off a emulator it runs slower thats #1.....
Wine isn't an emulator. Are you thinking logically?Is Wine an emulator? There seems to be an argument.
When users think of an emulator, they tend to think of things like Super Nintendo emulators or virtualization software. This is the wrong way to think about Wine - Wine runs Windows applications in essentially the same way Windows does. There is no inherent loss of speed due to "emulation" when using Wine, nor is there a need to open Wine before running your application.
Actually, I think Ubuntu Linux (and some other distributions) are easier than Windows. You don't have to go hunting online for applications, because most likely everything you need is in Synaptic Package Manager. And you don't have to worry about spyware and viruses like you do with Windows. For an experienced computer user, it's no problem to quickly find and install Spybot & Ad-Aware and AVG Free or Avast. However, inexperienced people usually neglect to get any kind of protection.Windows is easy but very expensive. While Linux is free.
Guess what? It's not Linux's fault. If ATI chooses to not make decent drivers, how about getting an NVIDIA video card? Any video card I buy is made by NVIDIA since I want to play games on Linux and don't want to support ATI if they won't make a better effort to support my OS.fix it fast with out going on line for support only to get "Oh blame ATI for not making those drivers, its not Linux's fault"
What's wrong with GIMP? Why not just use an older version of Photoshop?heres the #1 reason ALL ADOBE PRODUCTS. now if any ones says gimp, its cause you just dont know better.
Actually, most active Linux distributions are updated far more frequently than Windows is. I don't know much about paid support for Linux, but you can get free support on the distribution's forum (such as Ubuntu Forums for Ubuntu support). It won't take long to get a response.linux its free but lacks support and updates.
But windows is more vulnerable to virus and attacks.
i cant make an decision
