i completely agree
what can i do on ubuntu that i cant do on XP (thats important).
other tahn upgrade everything with one button, and customize the looks immensely. YES, sure, all the softwares free, that doesnt mean its good.
i could care less
XP runs mad fast on my machine, and all my software runs on it perfectly. Yes ubuntu uses less resources and uses my hardware more wisely, but iwth what? theres not too much software to use with it.
the only reason i think there is to use ubuntu is if ur PC is old, u can regain the functionality.
