linux is good if you know how to ./r00t :-D
Windows is good too, you should know how to configure OS before you blame them. I guess its becuase Windows has made life tooo easy for ppl. also considering that it grew rapidly there could be some bugs here and tehre...
well maybe some of you should try a ZOS :-D . Sure 90% of business runs on ZOS, but try checking your email on ZOS and it could take some JCL and some SYSINs well... (not the builtin mailing/message queue systems, but say POP3 emails).
I have win 2000, pretty nice . win98. I used linux 3 years abck , when during college days had tons of free time to ./compile and ./r00t :-D , apart from ./ing never had good use of linux box.
Well I am in IIT Bombay and we have an awesome LAN here. Last year we had a deadly attack by Blaster Worm which shook the very foundations of our network.
Administrative body then went rampant blaming windows for this tragedy and asked us to use Linux.
Now I hav both WinxP Service Pack2,(NOrton Antivirus,Sygate Firewall) and Gentoo 2000.5 as Linux.I have tried RHL9,Fedora COre 1,2,3, Suse 9.1. But I wud recommend Gentoo over all of these to those who have descent net speed cauz installation has never been so easy as in Gentoo.
Abt Windows, I use it mosty for Word Processing though Gentoo is gud enuf but I am used to WOrd.ALso Gaming WarCRaft 3,Unreal Tourney 4 ,Age of Empires,Diablo2 etc.
I will attribute lack of care and maintenance the reason why most window-ers whine abt it.
1)frequently update ur firewall?
2)Check for Windows Updates?
3)Run Admin TOols viz. Disk Defragment etc.?
If proper care is taken Windows is GUD enuf as any other OS.
