wow, so much to say, but just isn't worth the energy. Let them believe what they want, they are only fooling themselves.

I do say this tho, Windows 7 is pretty nice for what I do with it. I haven't tried gaming on it yet tho. I do all my photo editing/designing with widows 7 and photoshop and it works well. MS has it's place in the world that is for sure.

I noticed some mention in the article of IE8. Last week there was a posting in my ISP's forum from someone who had built a very simple website using MS software. It displayed perfectly in Firefox and Opera but IE8 couldn't or wouldn't display it! :)

Somebody mentioned in the comments that they (MS) should spend more energy in improving their system, instead of trying to make another system look bad. i fully agree. :)

Hm, i wonder if there are slides to compare Windows to Mac....

I‘ve seen these things many times before. Some of them are so bad you just can’t believe they’re real...

That aside, I can sympathise with one of the points in that training module. Windows Live Essentials really aren’t supported on Linux at all. Oh the despair. :roll:

Windows 7 is just Vista with a different taskbar and adjusted configuration. How can people fall for this? :shock:

It's just when you customize Linux to look and behave like Windows that makes people realize the difference. (And it's perfectly possible! It's just not allowed.)
