http://beranger.tumblr.com

Well, I did it once, after years of Linux (registered with the Linux Counter on August 26, 1996). Then I went back to… Ubuntu Jaunty, then I switched to CentOS 5.3 and have built my own extra repository Odiecolon.repo, only to end in Xubuntu Karmic, now being on Ubuntu Karmic.

Ubuntu has finally eclipsed Windows XP in terms of popularity. -- This is according to the most recent data from Google Trends. You may say that Windows XP is too old that’s why it’s loosing its appeal and is going downhill. So how about we will compare Ubuntu with the most recent Windows Vista. Or with the upcoming Windows 7.

The Biggest Windows XP Myth of All

http://www.thevarguy.com

Do you love going to the dentist to get a filling — if it means you don’t have to get root canal? In this case, XP is the filling you learn to live with because you don’t want all the deeper pain associated with Vista migrations. But that doesn’t mean you love XP.

Linux has better Windows compatibility than Vista

http://wine-review.blogspot.com

I have been using Vista for well over a year now (since Beta 1). Of course Vista is slow, its bloated (over 10x the size of XP), aero kills system performance (even though this should be done on the video card), networking is pathetically slow, etc etc. We all know Vista sucks.

But recently my blood has been set to a rolling boil by the fact that most of my games just don’t work in Vista. At all. Its so bad that out of spite I have decided to make a list of games that work better in Linux under Wine than in Vista. These are games that were originally written to run in Windows XP, are broken in Vista, but magically work in Linux.

http://www.techlogg.com

The idea of an open-source operating system that is designed to be 100% compatible with Windows XP and Windows 2000 is something new and has the potential to straddle the divide between consumer friendly and open-source. And that’s what ReactOS is aiming to do.
