yes there bad things.

Do you like gaming? = ubuntu linux don't why? most game makers targets windows.

Ubuntu is good for i dunno lol surfing? word proccessing? web hosting?

But then again wats windows not do that ubuntu does?

they all do same stuff just look different. but looks disappear after awhile.

i have vista desktop n vista laptop. n ubuntu machine.

yea sure vista requires high spec pc.

but its market drive. if u didnt have software to run on pcs. u wudnt have a need for fancey games, graphics etc. so everything works to gether. M$ = fancey os's n high spec.


hardware manufactures get more money as pc market expands to meet the high spec demand of vista (a)

the only reason id get windows, is to use MP!L caws patchou hasnt realised that windows is crap yet :P

but the amount of free alternatives to most programs for windows is enormous! and [usually] if you get linux/ubuntu, it comes with an emulator called wine, which runs some NOT ALL windows programs.

its a hackers favourite too =p and there's no known viruses/worms because of the way linux was made. so its pretty secure too. id recommend it, and if its a good pc/laptop get Beryl. youtube it.

there's no known viruses/worms - Well why target something thats not the most popular o/s in the world?

The same thing was say about Firefox, Max osx and others.

but yet they've gained on M$ oh n wat do we see now worms n viruses and loopholes being found.

Do you think if linux was number one O/S in the world it wouldnt have daily viruses and worms?

Quite frankly its wrong. as soon as it becomes very popular it will all end up in same boat as M$. virus after virus after virus n worms.

Main thing for linux is its free. Well so is windows u usually get it free when you buy a new pc.

i use both. don't see the big advantage for picking ubuntu over windows.  all do the same things in my eyes.

an all the stuff is free in my eyes 2.(can be got one way or another everyone knows it.)

i have paid for some software but nothing more than 20. Only because i loved the program so much  :)

if it was insecure like windows is, i doubt it would be the most popular server OS, and its increasing popularity on the desktop front too. with the ability to do the same things that windows can.

and its the way that linux was built right at the beginning that made it inherently secure. its waaaaay safer than windows trust me =p

Not to mention that it would be just a tiny bit stupid to get an addon for Windows Live Messenger working on Linux.

Not saying it isnt safer. i'm just saying u can hack anything. if u put same amount of hackers on to linux os as on a windows os it would be hacked.

Most popular server O/S ? thats true.
But let me see. you hear about hackers hacking sites all the time. and hosting is constantly being targetted.

but then how do u hack something in a Data centre ? behind a hardware firewalls?(remember its fully qualified professionals behind most servers.)

Why is it the most popular? Price.

PHP free, Support ? openly free, Projects and pre built software tons n tons of it.

Mysql, free.

perl, free.

apache free.

Automated hosting account creation n billing managers and anything esle u can think of. Its all there.
Linux has been used for hosting sites for years n years. same way windows has been used on desktops for years and years.
Hosting using open source is free. basically all your paying is server cost. try buying a copy of windows 2003 enterprise that removes a memory limited it costs thousands. why spend that for license on all your servers? when you can get free o/s to do same job?



server vs desktop , linux has always been known for server O/S. windows for desktop.

Main thing linux needs for major boost in the markets. is good hardware support + they need major game titles for they O/S.
Once that happens there's nothing stopping anyone switchin to linux.
